Megan Alexandra Blankenbiller, an unvaccinated TikToker who died of coronavirus while spending her last days in the hospital, pleaded with her followers to get vaccinated so that they “won’t end up in the hospital like me.”
On August 24, TikToker Megan Alexandra Blankenbiller took her last breath 9 days before recording her final TikTok video that urged her followers to get the vaccine as soon as possible to guard themselves against the coronavirus.
“I think if you’re even 70 percent sure that you want the vaccine, go get it. Don’t wait, go get it,” she stated. “Because hopefully, if you get it, then you won’t end up in the hospital like me, okay?”
As per BlankenBiller, she resisted getting vaccinated because she wanted to do it simultaneously as her family members, and they were not ready yet.
In a video she made for her followers, Megan Alexandra Blankenbiller said, “I did not get vaccinated. I’m not anti-vax,” “I was just trying to do my research. I was scared, and I wanted my family and me to all do it at the same time. And as I’m sure you guys know, it’s hard to get everyone to agree on something if people feel differently.”
According to her, it was not a mistake.
She started recording her Covid suffering from August 18, when she uploaded a video of herself on TikTok with a caption saying, The ‘vid got me, guys. DO NOT WAIT TO GET VACCINATED! Go now!!”
And later that day, she posted two more reels of herself lying in bed in a hospital.
One clip had her saying, “I’ve been here since for early Friday morning, and all I’ve been hearing are the moans and screams of people in pain — people, I’m assuming, that have lost people that they love because I know what that’s like personally and what that sounds like.”
Megan Alexandra Blankenbiller’s family revealed to the WebMD that she booked an appointment for a vaccination with her sisters and mother, but unfortunately, she couldn’t make it there and contracted Covid before getting vaccinated.
Rachel Blankenbiller, sister of the TikTok, said, “Her final video TikTokshowed a lot of who she was,” and that she was selfless — the type of person who used her final days to help others.”
