Tommy ‘Tiny’ Lister said he was looking forward to taking the COVID-19 vaccine just five days before his death in an interview with Brandon Jay.
According to Tommy’s rep, Cindy Cowan, Tommy actually tested positive for COVID-19 4 months ago. He was dealing with symptoms and was never hospitalized, but instead quarantined at home.
On December 3rd, Tommy was supposed to visit Cindy’s home but told her he was feeling symptomatic and would be unable to make it.
In his interview with Brandon Jay just five days before his death, it’s clear that Tommy was battling symptoms — he couldn’t speak, his struggled to breathe normally at times — but still, he was optimistic.
He told Brandon during their chat that he was ready for the vaccine and was eager to get back to work. He already had a shoot scheduled, but had to cancel because of his illness.
It’s unclear if Tommy was re-infected with COVID-19 or if the virus was still lingering from four months ago.
Autopsy results are pending.
