Hi @benlam11 Congratulations on your wonderful transplant AND your covid antibodies. That is awesome…You won the lottery! (I think the current percentage chance for an immune suppressed transplant patient to get antibodies from the vaccine is about 50%).

Hi @jennifer0726 You and I are in same boat when it comes to zero antibodies from the vaccine. Are you looking into possibly getting the new AstraZeneca Evusheld antibodies shot if the vaccine booster doesn't do anything? Evusheld is two shots that you get at the same time and you take it every six months to keep the covid antibodies in your system. The supply is very limited right now, but the manufacturer is gearing up for a greater supply in a few months.

I would like to hear what Mayo Transplant says about it, but if they approve I might try to get it. I have heard nothing on it from them or my PCP. My PCP is very hesitant to prescribe anything it seems. I would certainly push for it if it’s available and proven to work and if Mayo backed me up. I would love to feel confident about traveling and getting out more! Have you actually received the Evusheld antibodies yet? Please keep us updated!

As an Immunocompromised person I would do whatever it takes to get antibodies. As we know getting Covid for us leads generally to much worse outcomes. I'm still very careful and wear a KN95 mask plus limit my exposure to others (especially potentially unvaccinated).
