Time for an update to my attempt to get the 2nd dose of Evusheld. I'm still waiting!

I got a response from my PCP office on Nov 18 telling me that the request was sent to infusion center - and received by them! so following my earlier instructions from infusion center, I decided to with 3-4 days before calling them. With the Thanksgiving holiday, I waited until today, Nov. 28.
Guess what!?! they do not see it in their entries.
So - today, I have requested for the PCP nurse to call me so I can be sure of correct address - and to resend it. My patience is running on LOW. The infusion center will call me as soon as they get it, or let me know by 8 PM if they don't get the faxed request. 🤞

@guidant07, @joko, @scottij, @hello1234 , @gingerw - I don't know of anyone else is in a similar situation. I really am taking in all of the positive vibes that you have recently shared in this conversation.

@rosemarya I really hope they get it all straightened out soon for you! It gets tiring to constantly be advocating to get our treatments, doesn't it? I was lucky to have the injections at my oncology center, and they had doses there given to them from a hospital that didn't want to deal with it.

My husband has the names of two semi-local hospitals that have available doses, per the list @joko provided, but he hasn't followed through on contacting them yet. I gave him my patient education information to take a look at.

Keeping my fingers crossed for you...

Good Lord. This is one of those times when you want to jump through the phone. However deep breathing and counting to eight helps. It helps to laugh at the increasing idiocy in our society.

My PCP didn't know that there are specific forms to fill out for immune suppressed transplant patients. His team sought the correct forms, the doctor filled them out and I am getting my second Evusheld tomorrow.
