How to get me some vitamin C?

My most recent hemogram shows that my ferritin is at 0.7, and that scared the pants out of me. I also have low hemoglobin, my serum iron is nearly at normal levels, just a few points below normal. I have to wait for my doctor to come from his medical absence before I can show him the tests.

Until then I'm taking the iron supplements I was perscribed 2 months ago. I want to take some vitamin C to help with the absorption, but I have a little issue: I'm allergic to citric acid, so orange juice or other citrus fruits are out of the question.

Any suggestions on what I should eat to give my iron levels a push? Or should I just get a vitamin C supplement as well?

Thanks in advance.

I would get a vit C supplement and take it at same time as the iron.

You can get supplements at any pharmacy, and they usually have both the kind that you just swallow, and chewables. Not sure, but you might even find gummies. I know that multivitamins can be found in gummy form nowadays.
