Attendees will also hear perspectives from a Nursing Home Administrator whose care center is using this treatment to help residents and staff safely recover from COVID-19.
Monoclonal antibody treatments can be prescribed by health care providers to individuals 12 years of age and older who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 or who have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 and are at high risk for severe illness and hospitalization. The antibodies help the immune system recognize and respond effectively to the virus. For more information, visit the FHCA COVID-19 web page.
