A fully vaccinated Florida father has died from COVID-19 despite having no underlying conditions, according to his family.

Vincent Konidare, 58, of Palm Beach, Florida, passed way on September 19 after spending a month in the hospital battling the disease.

This in spite of the fact that Konidare had received the one-dose Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine in March.

His family is heartbroken and shocked that over his death.

‘He did what he was supposed to do,’ Jamie Konidare, Vincent’s wife, told WPBF. 

‘He did what he was told to do. He was trying to protect his family, and he just felt like it was the right thing to do. He felt that if he did get Covid, he would not die, that it would save him.’

Cases like Konidare’s are extremely rare.

Just 6,617 fully vaccinated people have died of Covid in the U.S., according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

That’s equivalent to one out of every 25,000 of at least 185 million people who are fully vaccinated in America.

Many of the deaths are among people who are seriously vulnerable to the virus for reasons such as being older than age 65, having underlying conditions or being immunocompromised.

( 191672785 Jamie, Vincent’s wife, said her husband enjoyed fishing, motorcycling and going to the beach

Konidare’s family told WPBF that he had no comorbidities, and at only 58, his age did not put him at a large risk either. 

He was also active and loved fishing, riding his motorcycle and going to the beach. 

He tested positive for the virus on August 2, and his condition deteriorated to the point where he needed to be hospitalized and placed on a ventilator.

After a month in the hospital, Konidare reached a point where doctors said he could no longer receive oxygen, and they told his family that he would soon succumb to the virus.

‘We all went to the hospital and we got there just in time to say goodbye,’ Jaime said. 

‘I just want people to know: This was a great guy,’ she said about her husband. 

‘He was an amazing husband, an amazing father, he was a beautiful, handsome, strong, healthy, kindhearted guy who was loved by so many people. The outpouring of love just never stopped.’ 

Jamie is urging others in her community to get vaccinated, but to not stop following mitigation measures.

‘Go ahead and get vaccinated because I still feel like it’s the right thing to do but to not let down your guard. You still need to wear your mask,’ she told WBPF. 

‘You still need to stay away from super spreader events and follow all the other guidelines.’

Health officials deem the COVID-19 vaccines effective at preventing infection, hospitalizations and death.

While the vaccine’s effectiveness against infection is believed to have waned over time, experts still deem the shots just as effective at preventing serious infection.

The Johnson & Johnson vaccine, which Konidare received, has been administered over 15 million times in the U.S., according to official data.

It is the only one-shot COVID-19 vaccine to receive authorization from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. 

Konidare’s family is now grieving their loss.

‘It’s unimaginable grief,’ said Jamie. ‘He was a beautiful, handsome, strong, healthy, kindhearted guy who was loved by so many people.’ 

He is also survived by two children.
