The idea of allowing myself to be vaccinated with an experimental mRNA vaccine that has not yet completed the testing stage really concerns me. And when I see hospitals essentially having to bribe their medical personnel to take the vaccine, I realize that I am not alone in this regard.
Perhaps I could have accessed hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) on my own, but since I’m posting this online, I decided to do it in a responsible manner.
I therefore talked to, and corresponded with, many people whom I trust in this matter. This includes several primary care physicians, physician’s assistants and nurses. Some of them have already been vaccinated, while others (more than you might believe) have decided to wait for more test results.

A month’s supply may sound like a lot, but it is actually only eight pills; two pills per week.
Because I have had elevated liver enzyme levels in the past, the doctor insisted that I go in for blood tests to establish a base level, and then repeat the same tests in 30 days. At that point, we will compare the results and decide whether it appears safe for me to continue the regimen.
And a regimen it is. The doctors (yes, there’s an ‘s’ on the end of that word) because several doctors suggested that I take the following supplements daily:
- 50 mg of zinc (25 mg in the a.m., 25 mg in the p.m.)
- 4,000 i.e.u. of vitamin D3
- At least 2,000 mg of vitamin C (I’m actually taking 4,000 mg/day)
Those supplements were no surprise, because I’d already been taking them anyway. CDE Febuary Rotating B... Buy New $22.99 (as of 02:51 EST - Details)
But this next one was a surprise.
- The doctors (yes, again, several doctors) recommended that I add 250 mg per day of quercetin to the mix.
As I said earlier, I’ve already been taking the zinc, D3 and C for years, so the only addition was the quercetin.
I had never heard of quercetin before, and a couple of grocery stores I visited had never heard of it either. But I found it at a local pharmacy later that same day.
Quercetin is an herbal supplement, non-prescription, and once one knows what to look for, is easily found on the web.
