    Monoclonal Antibody Treatment for COVID-19


    more ▼ less ▲

    Do I qualify for monoclonal antibody therapy?

    “Monoclonal antibody treatments are another tool in the toolbox to keep people out of the hospital, and as a state, we are working to administer every available dose to those who need it. The antibody infusion has proven to be effective, but it can only be administered after a high-risk person has tested positive for the virus. The vaccines remain the best way to prevent someone from being hospitalized because of COVID-19. Around 90 percent of people who are hospitalized with COVID-19 have not been vaccinated.”  Utah Governor Spencer Cox

    You qualify for monoclonal antibody treatment if you are 65 or older, you've tested positive for COVID-19, and it has been 10 days or less since your symptoms first started. You may also qualify if you are under 65, have tested positive for COVID-19, and it has been 10 days or less since your symptoms first started, and you have other health conditions that put you at higher risk. Monoclonal antibody treatment is most effective when given early and the sooner it is given the better.

    Getting vaccinated is the best way to prevent COVID-19. Monoclonal antibody treatment should NOT be used to prevent COVID-19. People who might benefit the most from this treatment are those who are most likely to be hospitalized or die from COVID-19.
