LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Shelbyville woman battled back from the brink after COVID-19 killed her husband and mother-in-law.

Tammy Clark, 61, spent a month in the intensive care unit at the UofL Health Shelbyville Hospital. She was on a ventilator for a week of her stay.

Now on oxygen, Clark said she wishes she would've gotten a COVID-19 vaccine.

"You've got to make your choices," she said. "I was afraid of it, and then look what I went through because I didn't take the shot. I almost died. I would've left my children, my grandkids. I don't know what my kids would've done if I passed away."

Clark plans to get the shot when she can. She believes she caught COVID-19 while working at a Kroger store.
