Monoclonal Antibody Therapy (mAb)
If you are currently infected with COVID-19 and are at higher-risk, mAb treatment can give you the antibodies your body needs to protect itself from severe illness — so you don’t end up in the hospital.
Monoclonal antibody treatment is most effective for older people and people with certain health conditions that put them at higher-risk of hospitalization or death from COVID-19. To qualify for mAb therapy, you must:
- Test positive for SARS-CoV-2
- Currently have symptoms of COVID-19
- Be within the first 10 days of symptom onset
- Be at high risk for severe illness from COVID-19 due to things like age and underlying medical conditions.
