TN Recommends The Vaccinated Be Denied Critical Covid-19 Treatment

The Tennessee state government now recommends nearly all vaccinated residents be denied access to monoclonal antibody treatment in a new effort to preserve a limited supply of antibody drugs for those who remain most vulnerable to the virus, largely by their own choice.

The federal government began capping shipments of these drugs last week because the majority of the national supply is being used by a small number of poorly vaccinated southern states, including Tennessee.

State officials say restricting eligibility to the treatment will reserve the now-limited supply of drugs for those unvaccinated residents most likely to suffer severe complications from a coronavirus infection.

But the recommendation is certain to frustrate many vaccinated Tennesseans, who took commonsense steps to help stop the pandemic and, as a result, may now lose access to one of the most effective treatments for the virus.

    If you got the vaccine, why should you need the treatment? Unless you have significant underlying health risks. It’s about saving lives, not preventing mild symptoms. Kudos to Tennessee. Does the vaccine work, or not?

      But if you got the vaccine and do end up needing the treatment, they shouldn’t just completely shut the door on the opportunity.

      Treatment should be determined by a doctor not a politician. Because the vaccine is not 100% effective and no one has ever claimed it is, treatment needs to be given as early as possible and shouldn’t be denied anyone.

    This is just does not mak sense. These not vaccinated say it’s their right. I agree. But it is the right of vaccinated to get the infusion just as much as the not vaccinated. What is wrong with these people. Everyone has the right to do what they want.
