The Florida Department of Health has included more monoclonal antibody treatment sites to expand access to this lifesaving treatment for COVID-19.
Monoclonal antibody treatments can prevent severe illness, hospitalization, and death in high-risk patients who have contracted or been exposed to COVID-19, according to the Florida Department of Health. In clinical trials, monoclonal antibody treatment showed a 70% reduction in hospitalization and death.
For high-risk patients who have been exposed to someone with COVID19, Regeneron can give you temporary immunity to decrease your odds of catching the infection by over 80%.
Now, these treatments are widely available in Florida.
Treatment is free and vaccination status does not matter. If you are 12 years or older and are at high risk for severe illness due to COVID-19, you are eligible for this treatment.
