The BBC reported that Sammie-Jo Forde, 32, a mother of four, died on Saturday, September 11th, in Ulster Hospital on the same ward where her mother, Heather Maddern, 55, died on September 31st.
The couple, both caregivers, were anti-Vaxxers, with MailOnline reporting that Maddern had shared a sizable amount of COVID-19 misinformation on their social media, including videos of Candace Owens and about nurses losing their jobs should they do so Reject COVID -19 vaccines.
The couple leaves a broken family behind.
Forde's father, Kevin McAllister, told the BBC's Nolan Show, "It just shook my world. I lost my daughter, my best friend." He said Forde, who had four children, and Maddern were "very, very close". "They worked together, they lived together and they died together," he said.
"I never, never in my life thought I'd bury my daughter," McAllister told the BBC, adding that he doesn't think she has any underlying health conditions and will be healthy until she contracted COVID .
"These people who don't take the COVID-19 injection - they don't think about the other people they leave behind," he said, explaining that he didn't know why they refused the vaccine.
Alan Chambers, an Ulster Unionist Party MLA who knows the bereaved, told the Belfast Telegraph, "It's such shocking news, Sammie-Jo had four children. Sammie-Jo was such a good mother to her."
As caregivers, mother and daughter would be entitled to the vaccine from January 2020.
The tragic deaths come as CDC data shows those who don't stay vaccinated are 11 times more likely to die from COVID-19 than those who are vaccinated.
So far in the UK, over 80% of the eligible population have received both doses of their COVID-19 vaccinations, according to the government.
