COVID-19 Monoclonal Antibody Infusion Center: Information for Patients

Please Note: Currently, only one available monoclonal infusion medication (Bebtelovimab) is effective against the omicron variant of COVID-19.

Evusheld therapy is currently available as preventative treatment for patients who are immunocompromised or unable to receive a COVID-19 vaccine due to severe adverse reactions. It is not a treatment for existing COVID-19 infection. Due to low availability, we must prioritize eligible patients seeking treatment with Evusheld.

Monoclonal antibody treatment must be administered within 7 days of COVID-19 symptoms starting.
