Refused vaccine

and now has 'new' lungs

June 18, 2021 -- A Texas man who declined the COVID-19 vaccine earlier this year contracted the coronavirus and needed a double lung transplant to survive. Now he’s speaking up and encouraging others to learn from his experience by getting vaccinated.

Joshua Garza, 43, of Sugarland, decided not to get vaccinated in January because he didn’t think he needed it. Later that month, he tested positive and became severely ill.

“COVID ended up attacking my lungs,” he told ABC News. “It was quick, it was within 3 weeks, the lungs were already shot.”

Part of a trial. Should this result simply be thrown out?
