Şükran Yücel, who is not vaccinated, is married and has one child, caught coronavirus after attending her nephew’s wedding in early September.
Yucel, who was quarantined at home and started his treatment, was taken to the hospital a week later when his health condition worsened.
Yücel, who was treated in the intensive care unit of Ankara Training and Research Hospital, continues.
“It’s better than living with such fear”
Speaking in the intensive care unit, Şükran Yücel said that he regretted not having the vaccine.
Stating that he was affected by the rhetoric ‘There are different things in the vaccine’ and that’s why he didn’t get vaccinated, he said, “I was a little against the vaccine. I was affected by what I heard. There was a sense of uncertainty about the vaccine. Citizens get their vaccinations. It’s better than living with fear like this because I’ve had it very badly. Intensive care is a really bad thing. Everyone get vaccinated. What I’ve been through is really tough stuff. I went through a lot of bad things because of the disease. After I got out of here, I decided to get vaccinated. Those who have not been vaccinated, I think you should get vaccinated as soon as possible. What I went through was very difficult.”
They say ‘I wish I had a timeout’
Ankara Training and Research Hospital Covid-19 Intensive Care Unit Responsible Prof. Dr. Ayşe Özcan stated that Şükran Yücel applied to them with respiratory distress and said:
“In the first stage, he was in the 2nd step intensive care unit. His condition was more severe and serious than what he is now. He needed intensive respiratory support because he needed respiratory support. We quickly started both drug therapy and respiratory therapy in the 2nd step intensive care unit. Better than our patient. We received a response as of yesterday. We took him to this intensive care unit, which is the primary care unit. When we look at the history of the patients when they first come, we check whether they were vaccinated. Unfortunately, Ms. Şükran was one of our patients who were not vaccinated. We always ask ‘Why weren’t you vaccinated?’ “There is no clear explanation. Indeed, the things heard from the surroundings, neighbors and relatives affect a lot. Why the doctors’ words and the recommendations of health professionals are not taken into account so much, but I don’t know how the neighbors are effective. All our unvaccinated patients always say ‘I wish I had been vaccinated’ because “No one knows how much trouble they will experience without experiencing it. Not being able to breathe, feeling that respiratory distress is a very serious problem.”
