NEWS on COVID-19 in Louisiana: This doctor treated Louisiana's 1st critically ill coronavirus patient; 9 months later he got the vaccine

“Dr. Joshua Denson says he distinctly remembers being in the intensive care unit in March, about nine months ago.

A pulmonary and critical care doctor at Tulane Medical Center and University Medical Center, Denson was truly on the front lines of Louisiana's fight against coronavirus by, as he describes it, ‘admitting (and) intubating what turned out to be the first critically ill covid case in Louisiana.’

Denson describes the scene as ‘by far my most nerve wracking airway to date.’

Fast forward to this week, and Denson shared a photo on Twitter of himself getting the coronavirus vaccine, one of the first rounds of New Orleanians to receive the first of the two-shot regimen.

There's a partial feeling of guilt, Denson said, as the state began vaccinating medical professionals at a high risk of coronavirus exposure.

‘I hesitated to post this pic as I feel guilty receiving it before so many which need it more than me,’ Denson wrote. ‘But I know it’s important to share (and) to get the word out that this vaccine is safe, so I am not holding back.[‘]”
