According to a report from KCAL Los Angeles, a 34-year-old man who joked six weeks ago that he had not been vaccinated against COVID-19 died from the novel coronavirus this week after documenting on his social media accounts his declining health while asking for prayers.

The report states that Stephen Harmon, a graduate of Hillson College, made his last social media post on Wednesday just before he was intubated.

He wrote, "i'm choosing to go under intubation, i've fought this thing as hard as i can but unfortunately it's reached a point of critical choice & as much as i hate having to do this i'd rather it be willingness than forced emergency procedure. don't know when i'll wake up, please pray."

Six weeks ago he mocked the idea of getting vaccinated by tweeting, "If you're having email problems, I feel back for you, son. I got 99 problems, but a vax ain't one."

The report goes on to note that he posted pictures of his health decline on his Instagram account.
