Well, I was hoping that I would get another dose of the Evusheld antibodies before summer, especially because I thought any next dose might protect against Omicron and all the variants after.
Nope. Looks like they're just giving up. Those new variants account for over 90% of new cases now, so Evusheld is off the market.
The CDC shrugs their shoulders, and urges people to get tested if they’ve been exposed, and to take steps before they become ill to learn where they can access testing and treatments, which I read as, "be prepared to get sick."
However the article above ends with, "AstraZeneca, the maker of Evusheld, said in a statement that it is investigating the safety and efficacy of a 'next-generation long-acting antibody' to prevent Covid-19 among immune-compromised people."
I think the Reuters version of the article ended with President Biden urging immune-suppressed people to stay inside and wash their hands, so I guess this vague promise from the drugmaker is more palatable than that.
It has been three years now with this nonsense. I am ready to go the chicken-pox infected lollipop route now. It seems I could go off my MS meds for a month, build up my immune system, then deliberately get Covid and get antibodies that way. Why? Why wouldn't that work?
