16-year old high school vaccinated football player Azorean Tatum from Memphis dies from COVID-19

Azorean Tatum had a bright future. The 16 year old high school football player from Memphis, Tennessee was vaccinated, but died from the COVID-19 virus.

Tatum played football at Westwood High School, and was healthy. He did suffer from Asthma, but contracted the virus through the school.

His mother Quintina Bucker said, he was fine then drastically became sick. Tatum collapsed at school and was taken to the Baptist Children’s Hospital where he was diagnosed with COVID-19.

After two days in the hospital, he was released and quarantined at his home. After what appeared to be an improvement in his condition, Buckner said, Tatum suddenly became very sick. 

A GoFundMe was set up for his family to help pay for funeral expenses.
