A Michigan couple who received both mRNA injections before dying of Covid-19 are not considered "fully vaccinated" because they didn't receive the booster.

Cal Dunham, 59, and his wife Linda, 66, died within one minute of each other while holding hands, according to family.

Cal and Linda received their mRNA injections in May. Cal updated his Facebook page to announce they'd gotten their shots.

They both took extra precautions because they had pre-existing health conditions. Still, they contracted Covid during a camping trip, Fox 17 reported.

The couple's daughter Sarah Dunham said her parents believed they caught colds or had sinus infections.

"[My dad] called me before our family camping trip and said he wasn't feeling good but he thinks it's just like sinus, and [Linda] caught it and she's like, he gave me his cold," she told Fox17.

"The third day they woke me up and said, 'We've got to go because we don't feel well.' So I packed them all up and they left."

The couple was hospitalized and placed on ventilators. They died within one minute of each other while holding hands on Sunday.

Their deaths will not be listed as breakthrough Covid deaths because they didn't receive the third booster shot.

The FDA approved Pfizer-BioNTech booster shots for those age 65 and older, people with pre-existing conditions, or those with pre-existing medical conditions.

U.S. Pres Joe Biden, 78, received a booster shot in front of cameras on Monday. He said America won't return to normal until 97% or 98% of Americans are vaccinated.

A GoFundMe page was created to help raise funds for funeral expenses.

Six members of the same church in Florida died within 10 days after testing positive for Covid-19, the pastor says.

Rev. George Davis of the Impact Church in Jacksonville said the deaths of his members have "ripped out hearts apart.

Davis held a Covid-19 vaccination clinic at his church on Sunday.

"We've had now six members of our church over the course of a couple weeks now that have passed away from Covid," Davis said in a livestream. "It has just absolutely ripped our hearts apart."

He said none of the victims were vaccinated, and four were "healthy" and under the age of 35.

"All I know is my heart's passion is to help people that I'm called to serve, and do whatever I can to help see to it that they are in a healthier place," he told NBC affiliate WFLA of Tampa.

About 49.6 percent of Florida's population has been fully vaccinated, according to NBC's vaccination tracker.

Covid-19 mainly affects the elderly, obese, people who smoke, and people with underlying medical conditions such as cardiac and respiratory problems, and diabetes.

In a follow-up tweet, she wrote:

"I have a death causing allergy to peanuts and wanted to have my Epi pen with me when I got vaccinated in case I went into anaphylaxis shock. Turns out my "insurance" wouldn't cover it and it's $387????"

Charles reported "soreness" at the injection site that resolved two days later.

Tributes continue to pour in on social media for the Haitian-born defense attorney, who used her social media presence to promote the vaccine.
