Monoclonal Antibody (mAb) Therapy

What is Monoclonal Antibody Treatment and Who Can Get It?

Monoclonal antibodies are lab-made antibodies that can be administered to prevent serious illness and hospitalization due to COVID-19. Monoclonal antibody treatment is given through subcutaneous injection. Vaccinated and unvaccinated people may be eligible.

The treatment is recommended for COVID-positive individuals who:

  • - Are 12 years of age or older.
