    Dr. Oz (I know people think he's a quack) was talking about those monoclonal antibodies the other day and he said everyone should try to get them if they have Covid, especially if they meet the qualifications.
    I read they are best used for mild COVID cases?

    Are doctors prescribing any treatments for mild cases now? Months back when I had it, I was just told to stay home and isolate, no additional advice given.

    What do you all think of this? Everyone was talking about it at work today...... not sure if she is a "quack" or not, but shows why so many people are afraid of the vaccine. Wondering what you guys think of this.

    This MD says the mRNA is not destroyed and never stops making S- protein fragments (no off button) and the antibodies formed destroy type 1 macrophages and destroy lung tissue.

    So, my state and county keeps opening up age groups (70 and above now) and new occupations, while medical high risk groups keep getting pushed back. Since I have diabetes and lupus I am not delighted to keep getting pushed back down the line. Then it occurred to me: this is happening because the state has no idea how they are going to identify individuals at high risk. There is no “hi, I’m a diabetic” club card, and with people cheating and bribing to jump the line, it would be super easy to forge a doctor’s note, or even pay your doctor to write one. While it’s easy to identify a teacher or a fireman, they have work ID cards, and age is even easier, it’s on your driver’s license.

    I’ve seen the 75 page long state plan for vaccination and there’s a section supposedly devoted to how they are going to identify at risk people, and it’s one sentence saying they are going to use some database I never heard of, which I’m pretty sure I am not in.

    No proof, just a wild theory, but I am guessing there is no plan, so they keep postponing it. They have already changed “diabetic” to “diabetic requiring medication,” which makes sense if they are going to demand proof of a prescription.

    Two of my staffers who are immune-compromised have had doctors (different ones) get them their appointments. Could your doctor help you get an appointment?
