A week ago, while in the doctor’s office with a case of Influenza A, I was told that the medication being prescribed to me was in short supply and reserved for older patients. I responded to my care provider that I was OK with not having the medication, and that it should be given to elderly patients.

Those may have been a poor choice of words on my part. My provider shared with me that my age put me in the demographic she was speaking of and that I should take the medicine.
