COVID-19 Treatment and Monoclonal Antibodies (MAB)
COVID-19 monoclonal antibodies can help prevent severe illness for some people who get infected with COVID-19. The FDA has authorized these neutralizing antibody treatments for emergency use. The treatments are available to people who have tested positive for COVID-19, have mild to moderate symptoms, and who are at high risk of developing severe illness.
Free monoclonal antibody (MAB) treatments are available in Archuleta and La Plata Counties
