If you have tested positive for COVID-19, you may be able to get monoclonal antibody treatment to help you recover. This treatment can help keep you from getting seriously sick and keep you out of the hospital.
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.
Find out if you’re eligible: You might be eligible for treatment if you have tested positive for COVID-19, your symptoms started within the last 10 days, you aren’t hospitalized or on oxygen due to COVID-19, and you are at risk of getting very sick without treatment. People as young as 12 years old can get monoclonal antibody treatment.
Contact your health care provider to find out if you are eligible for monoclonal antibody treatment. Here is a map of available monoclonal antibody treatment locations in Colorado: Monoclonal Antibody Treatment Map.
Scientific studies show that high-risk COVID-19 patients treated with monoclonal antibodies were significantly less likely to get very sick and/or need to be hospitalized compared to patients who did not receive the treatments. Studies have also shown that being treated with monoclonal antibodies reduces the risk of getting COVID-19 if you have been exposed to a person testing positive for COVID and you are unvaccinated or partially vaccinated.
Remember, monoclonal antibody treatments are not a substitute for vaccination against COVID-19. Getting vaccinated is the best way to keep from getting sick with COVID-19.
