Conidare’s family told WPBF that he did not have the disease, and at only 58 years old, his age did not put him at great risk.
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 worsened so much that he needed to be hospitalized and put on a ventilator.
After a month in the hospital, Conidare reached a point where doctors said he could no longer get oxygen, and told his family that he would soon succumb to the virus.
Jaime said, ‘We all went to the hospital and we got there just in time to say goodbye.
She said of her husband, ‘I just want to let people know: He was a great man.
‘He was a wonderful husband, a wonderful father, he was a handsome, handsome, strong, healthy, kind man who was loved by so many. The boom of love never stopped.
Jamie is urging others in her community to get vaccinated, but don’t stop following mitigation measures.
‘Go ahead and get vaccinated because I still think it’s the right thing to do but don’t let your guard down. You still need to wear your mask,’ she told WBPF.
‘You still need to stay away from super spreader events and follow all other guidelines.’
Health officials consider COVID-19 vaccines effective in preventing infection, hospitalization, and death.
Vincent is survived by his wife and two children. Jamie says her husband was ‘a wonderful husband, a wonderful father, he was a handsome, handsome, strong, healthy, kind boy who was loved by so many’
While the effectiveness of vaccines against infections is believed to have decreased over time, experts still consider the shots to be just as effective in preventing serious infections.
