Please do not write headlines like this. This could (unintentionally?) be interpreted to mean that she wouldn’t have were it provided. It also puts a target on the hospital.

Well, that was clearly a mistake.

Time to unfollow. Later, all.

How is this headline still up? Are there no editorial standards? This headline does not describe the actual story at all.

Her ignorance and lack of a vaccine killed her. Not the hospital staff. Maybe her surviving family will re-think the necessity of the vaccine if they aren't already vaccinated.
