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.
I’ve got a feeling the government is lying about vaccination rates and it’s way less than what they are reporting.
They are becoming more and more extreme in their threats and the only reason that would make sense, is if the majority of people were not complying.

As a former healthcare worker & first responder let me leave you with this: if 70,000 healthcare workers are willing to be fired rather than take a mandatory shot - what does that say to you?
