Dr. Lance VanGundy, an emergency room doctor with UnityPoint Health Marshalltown, is sick of it.

After four days in a row of long shifts in the ER, and a few conversations with unvaccinated patients who remained skeptical of the vaccine, VanGundy had enough.

From the front seat of his car, still in his scrubs, VanGundy went live on Facebook. 

"Hey, I feel like I wouldn't be doing my job if I didn't say something," VanGundy started in the video. "I don't want to be political, I just need everybody to really know. In over 20 years of doing this, I've never been this busy or this stressed or seeing this many sick people."

VanGundy talked about not being able to admit patients or find open intensive care unit beds in the state. 

"They're all full, so this is bad," said VanGundy in the video.  "It feels like a third-world country sometimes. So get your shots, people, get your shots."

Little did VanGundy know, but his Facebook video would be shared more than 1,600 times and gathered nearly 300 comments in 24 hours.
