Fully Vaccinated Southwest Airlines Flight Attendant Dies from Coronavirus

A Southwest Airlines flight attendant based in Las Vegas died Tuesday from COVID-19, according to his family and co-workers. Maurice “Reggie” Shepperson, a native New Yorker whose brightly colored pants earned him the nickname Skittles during training in 2014, tested positive for the coronavirus in early July and had been fighting it in a hospital for a month, according to Marcia Hildreth, a Southwest flight attendant who called him her best friend. He was on a ventilator and died early Tuesday, his mother, Dawn Shepperson, told USA TODAY.  A nurse told her it was from COVID-19.

I’m not an anti-vaxxer. I just think that you should do your own research, talk to your doctor and then make a decision on whether or not to get vaccinated. Prayers for this man’s family.
