@A MyMyelomaTeam Member I was able to get the Evusheld shots this week. My oncologist recommended it bcuz I don't make any of my own antibodies, which would midst likely make the vaccine ineffective for me.
This is like the vaccine. And you don't need to have had prior vaccinations or boosters before that. It's best not to have covid symptoms, it's mostly prophylactic, but might be found to be a therapy eventually too.

It is not available if you are COVID-19 positive. Read the link posted below by another team member.
My Dr doesn't recommend getting vaccine due to low immune system. I just wear my N95 mask and basically stay away from public places and and crowds. Make sure your mask is approved by your Dr and some are worthless. Cloth masks do not provide protection we need. Neither do those little blue disposable ones.
Hope you get the right answers to your questions. πŸ€—

Hi Connelly Donnally, Hi, Yes I think your doctor is referring to EVUSHELD which has been just released from the FDA on a Emergency Use, because it can have adverse events of which Anaphylactic Shock and Cardiac Events are at the top. I do believe I read in some of the literature that you do need the booster vaccine. Something that I didn’t know tell I just read a study you can cross Pfizer and Moderna and actually it performs slightly better. Wish I had known before, I was sticking to Moderna since I started with Moderna not thinking you could cross vaccines. Good luck! You have a lot to go through. God Bless You! πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™
