My rheumatologist wanted to start Actemra infusions. She had other pts on it and thought I was a good fit.
However we found that NONE is available for us autoimmune pts. It has all been diverted for use in severely ill covid pts. A year ago when I couldn't get hydroxychloroquine for the same reason, it was a bit more understandable because there was no vaccine. Now, however, the people sick enough with Covid to need Actemra, are mostly those who refused vaccine and now sadly pay the price for their bad decisions. Their choice. I had no choices, nor ways to prevent my autoimmune diseases. But I (and many like me) have to pay the price for vaccine refusers poor decisions. FAIR?
