As governments urge citizens to get the COVID-19 vaccine shot, a conservative radio host from Florida has died from COVID-19 complications after refusing to take the vaccine.

WNDB Radio Host Marc Bernier, who called himself “Mr. Anti-Vax,” was hospitalized for three weeks after contracting the virus but unfortunately succumbed, according to the statement released by WNDB.
Bernier was active in expressing his refusal to get vaccinated as he said that the US government is “acting like Nazis” for encouraging people to be vaccinated.

However, Bernier is only one of three radio personalities who have died after not getting the COVID-19 jab.



Tennessee radio host Phil Valentine also died from COVID-19 on August 21 after a month-long battle with the virus.

Queens, New York native and Newsmax Anchor Dick Farrel died on August 4 and had changed his views on getting the vaccine, encouraging friends and family to get the vaccine after he was diagnosed with COVID-19.

Amy Leigh Hair, Farrel’s close friend, said that the anchor had regretted not getting the vaccine, and asked her to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

“RIP Dick Farrel. He is the reason I took the shot! He texted me and told me to ‘Get it!’ He told me that this virus is no joke and he said: ‘I wish I had gotten it!'” Hair said in a Facebook post.
