Monoclonal antibody infusion for COVID-19

In November 2020, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued an emergency use authorization for monoclonal antibody therapy. This infusion therapy is used to treat children and adults with mild to moderate COVID-19 symptoms who are at high risk of developing severe COVID-19 illness and for hospitalization.

Monoclonal antibody infusion treatment is not the same as the COVID-19 vaccine.

The treatment is only available for high-risk, COVID-19-positive patients who meet the following criteria. A referral by a healthcare provider is required, so talk to your provider if you think you may be a candidate.

When to seek emergency care for COVID-19

In some circumstances, it may be necessary to seek emergency care for COVID-19 symptoms. Here are some signs you or a loved one needs to go to your nearest emergency department or call 911:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Ongoing chest pain or pressure
  • Inability to wake up or stay awake
  • Bluish lips or face
  • New confusion

If you dial 911 or call ahead to the emergency department, let the operator know you or your loved one has or may have COVID-19.
