Early detection is key. You can receive this infusion whether you have been vaccinated or not. For vaxxed patients, it can cut back on downtime tremendously and help with those Post Covid symptoms. For the un-vaxxed, it has proven to help keep patients from being hospitalized or intubated.

Here's what Avail Hospital's website says:

Monoclonal antibody infusion therapy is an outpatient infusion treatment that gives the patient specially prepared antibodies that are already equipped to fight the virus. The treatment is recommended for patients after they have tested positive for COVID-19 and acts to keep the infection under control.

Although it is effective in lowering patients’ risk of hospitalization due to COVID-19, monoclonal antibody therapy is not a substitute for vaccination, and we urge everyone to get vaccinated to help slow the spread of COVID-19.
