Therapeutic Treatment Options for COVID-19 Patients
Monoclonal Antibody Treatment
COVID-19 treatments are available that may help reduce the risk of hospitalization and serious complications for eligible high-risk people who test positive for COVID-19. Called monoclonal antibody treatments, the treatments are most beneficial when given as soon as possible after an individual tests positive for COVID.
Monoclonal antibody treatments are available through the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for non-hospitalized COVID-19 positive people.

Infusion sites displayed in this tool have been authorized to administer antibody treatments for COVID-positive patients under Emergency Use Authorization, but their inclusion in this tool does not imply current availability of doses.
These antibody therapies are restricted to certain high-risk patients and require a drug order (similar to a prescription) from a Health Care Provider (HCP) for eligible patients. HCPs must verify eligibility of their patients and verify the availability of doses at an authorized infusion site before they refer an eligible patient to schedule an appointment to receive treatment at an authorized infusion site.
If you have difficulty navigating the site, please see the National Infusion Center Association COVID-19 Antibody Treatment: Resource Center.
