State Sen. Doug Ericksen is a vocal critic of COVID-19 vaccine mandates, but when he contracted COVID in El Salvador, he begged for an IV of monoclonal antibodies to be flown all the way down to him.
I’ve rheumatoid arthritis (an autoimmune illness) and depend upon the life altering monoclonal antibody drug tocilizumab (Actemra) to maintain my signs below management. The the U.S. Meals and Drug Administration has given emergency use authorization to tocilizumab to deal with hospitalized sufferers with COVID-19. As a result of it’s now being stockpiled to deal with COVID sufferers, there’s a worldwide scarcity of the drug that retains me from turning into disabled.
Individuals like Sen. Ericksen demand their freedom to refuse the vaccine, but are completely joyful to take an experimental therapy for COVID, and deny it to those that have relied on it for extreme autoimmune illnesses. Sen. Ericksen is the epitome of selfishness.
