Gemma Roberts was in hospital when her heart stopped on multiple occasions during a battle against the killer virus and two bouts of sepsis at Warrington Hospital, Cheshire.
She had been in hospital since August having been rushed in and placed on a ventilator.
The 35-year-old stayed in for two months, and has now told The Mirror that she regrets not getting the jab.
She said: “I remember saying to doctors and nurses 'please don't let me die'.
“Before I was put to sleep I rang my partner Sophie and said: 'They are having to put me to sleep but I'm going to be okay'.
“But there were moments when I thought: 'I could be a goner here'. I wish I had the vaccine before, I think everyone should have it now.
“I was one of those people that was scared of having the jab. I heard it had killed people.
“I took a chance and I almost didn't pull through. Medical professionals saved my life, that's who I will listen to now.
