The father-of-three turned down a Covid vaccine but realized too late that it was his best chance to protect himself against the virus.

His family says the former player has not been vaccinated after being “affected by all the chatter on social media.”

In a desperate message sent from the hospital, he wrote to his former teammate: “I’ll get the stabs ASAP.”

His cousin, Michelle Pierce, a nurse, is now urging others to get vaccinated after Stephen was “too late”.

She said: “While Stephen was hospitalized, he texted his former team-mate Nichola and said: ‘I’ll get the stabs as soon as possible’.

“He said he never wanted to go through this again. Sadly, he never got the chance to get vaccinated. It was too late for him.

“He was against vaccination before he went and I would say he was influenced by all the social media chatter.

“He has no underlying health condition. He is very fit and healthy. ”

Stephen, who was working as dispatch supervisor before his death, left the hospital in mid-December on antibiotics.

But he was rushed back in just three days before Christmas after he was struggling to breathe.

Michelle, who works at Llandudno Hospital in North Wales, said: “We don’t know if he will self-discharge but he is self-isolating.

“His former partner Nichola went to see him on December 22 and found him very unwell.”

Everyone needs to know this is happening to healthy people

Stephen was put on a ventilator on Christmas Day while also suffering from a deep vein thrombosis in his leg.

His condition worsened the following week and doctors told the family he had developed bilateral pneumothorax – meaning both lungs collapsed.

Stephen tragically passed away on January 3 at Warrington Hospital.

Stephens’ mother Janet, sister Nicola and his ex-partner are now urging people to protect themselves against Covid.

Michelle added: “People need to know this is happening to healthy people.

“If we can save a person by getting them vaccinated, it’s worth telling our story.

“He’s just a funny guy. He loves to make people laugh and is always ready to laugh.

“He loves spending time with his children and making them all happy.”

Chief medical officer, Dr Nick Lyons, of the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Department, said: “I can only offer my condolences to Michelle and her family for their grieving loss.

“I also wanted to express their courage in thinking of others right after the loss of a loved one.

“Of course they’re absolutely right – a full Covid vaccination is by far the best way to protect your health during a pandemic.”
