TikTok Creator Urged Vaccination Before Dying From COVID-19

Alexandra Blankenbiller documented her life, and her COVID-19 hospitalization, on TikTok. The Florida woman told her over 16K followers she wasn’t vaccinated because she was, “trying to convince my whole family to do it at the same time.“ By the time Alex’s mother and two sisters agreed to take the vaccine, it was too late. They were all diagnosed with the virus before their appointment. Alexandra died nine days after she posted her final TikTok video. She was 31 years old.
