That’s what Phil Valentine’s brother Mark says as the Conservative talker struggles for survival with COVID-19 related pneumonia. The story of Phil Valentine being very sick with COVID has been picked up by nearly every news outlet in the country after saying on his show he was a skeptic of the vaccine.
Mark Valentine told News 4 Nashville that his brother’s attitude toward the vaccine was geared toward others doing their individual research and making decisions based on their medical history and physician’s insight. He said Phil is now encouraging others to take the vaccine to avoid what he’s currently going through. “If he had to do it over again, he would be more adamantly pro-vaccination, and that is what he will bring in his message when he gets back to that microphone which we hope is sooner rather than later.”
Valentine remains hospitalized. He’s not on a ventilator, he’s using a high-flow oxygen machine during the day and night.
Valentine tested positive for COVID on July 11th.
