Has Anyone Noticed That NONE Of The Covid Vaccines Are FDA Approved?

Has Anyone Noticed That NONE Of The Covid Vaccines Are FDA Approved?

I was just researching covid vaccines. NONE of them are FDA approved. Instead they are EUA, emergency use authorization. The issuance of an EUA is different than an FDA approval (licensure) of a vaccine.

We can only hope that this lawsuit against Gilead for they are the ones who make and still have on the market, "Travada". It still has these really bad side effects. Sure not everyone gets these side… read more

Once Approved By The FDA And Qualified In Clinical Trials, Would You Have Your Physician Give You The Covid-19 Vaccine?

With different pharmaceutical companies, AstraZeneca, Pfizer and Moderna all creating a covid-19 vaccine in the coming months, which one would you decide to take or would you at all? 🤔

A myHIVteam Member said:

@A myHIVteam Member You are very correct. As long as these vaccines give a great results then each year we will have to get another vaccine just like we do yearly for the flu shot. The Covid… read more

What Are Your Feelings With U=U.... And The Issue With Wearing Or Not Wearing A Mask After Receiving The COVID-19 Vaccine?

What Are Your Feelings With U=U.... And The Issue With Wearing Or Not Wearing A Mask After Receiving The COVID-19 Vaccine?

Back in 1990,..I remember within our own LGBTQ community, we were being ostracized because a lot of us died of AIDS and were infected with HIV and the population feared us. Today that stigma continues after doctors and the CDC say that a person who is undetectable under anti virals can have unprotected sex with another HIV undetectable person and can even have unprotected sex with an HIV negative person and not infect that person.. (it has been proven medically through science).... but today… read more

After Vaccination Is Completed, Will You Continue With The CDC Recommended Protocols To Remain Safe?

After Vaccination Is Completed, Will You Continue With The CDC Recommended Protocols To Remain Safe?

After you are fully vaccinated will you still continue with wearing a mask, social distance, and avoiding large crowds?
It appears the majority of the team will get vaccinated and I wanted to find out what changes you will make after it's done.
Everyone will adapt to their own "new normal" when things begin to settle and get sorted out.

Curious If Anyone Has Tested Positive For Covid Following Both Vaccinations And Booster?

Curious If Anyone Has Tested Positive For Covid Following Both Vaccinations And Booster?

I went to a doctor's appt the other day who is a GP whose clinic has seen a number of people coming in with breakthrough Covid, meaning testing positive after all the vacs. They say those of us immune and auto immune folks may need to receive yet another booster sooner than later because of this. I guess nothing is full proof but very glad I got vaccinated with the booster. Just wondered if you or you know anyone who has had a breakthrough positive Covid test since being vaccinated?

BTW… read more

What Insurance Companies Will Allow A 90-day Supply Of HIV Medications?

What Insurance Companies Will Allow A 90-day Supply Of HIV Medications?

I'm on Medicare and have a Medicare Part-D supplement which covers the cost of all my medications with a deductible. The deductible for my HIV medications is about $6000 per year plus the cost of the insurance. Luckily Hawaii's ADAP (state health dept drug assistance program) pays for the insurance plus any HIV related deductibles.

ADAP is now willing to pay for 90-day supplies but my supplemental insurance, Humana will only allow a 30-day supply. ADAP is encouraging me to find an… read more
