So our doctor said to go get them. Actually, she was kind of lukewarm on the subject - our Internet digging said that they may or may not handle the new variant, but the test doesn't tell you what you have and the doc said that it wouldn't do any harm. So off we went.
Remember last fall when President Biden cut off monoclonal antibodies to Florida? This looks like one of the many shoot-from-the-hip and then backtrack policies from this Keystone Kops administration. You can get them, although we had to drive a bit. There's actually a pretty nice web page to find the location nearest to you.
And so off we went. It was the better part of an hour drive which wasn't too bad. This was a pop-up clinic in a community center. There were a bunch of folks there as walk-ins; we were glad that we made reservations.
The procedure can be given two ways - an infusion (The Queen Of The World got this) or a set of four injections (I got these thinking it would be quicker - it was, but they keep you for an hour after the procedure "just in case" so it really wan't). Then we drove back.
A couple hours later I started feeling worse - not a ton worse, but I had felt like I was on the mend before and then I didn't. Even today it feels like I took a step backwards, although this is pretty impressionistic. TQOTW doesn't seem to be much different.
So, did it do any good? Beats me. What I think I learned from this is that all the panic porn has an effect - I'm kind of glad that I took TQOTW because she wasn't doing great - but this is an emotional side of me that has been manipulated for two years. The logical side of me thinks that maybe it didn't do anything.
Your mileage may vary, void where prohibited, do not remove tag on penalty of law. Oh, and the Biden Administration can suck it. Thanks for nothing, guys, you vindictive pricks.
UPDATE 25 JANUARY 2022 13:10: Aaaaand they're gone. The FDA removed the Emergency Use Authorization for monoclonal antibodies in Florida. Looks like it's the only State subject to this restriction. I'm glad we got ours last week. Man, the Democrats suck.
Let's go, Brandon!
