COVID Antibody Infusion Services at CCMH

If you have tested positive for COVID-19, ask your provider about Monoclonal antibodies as a treatment option. CCMH has the capability to do these treatments under the direction of your physician. These treatments are for people who are experiencing mild to moderate symptoms of COVID-19 and are at high risk of developing severe disease and at risk of being hospitalized. Monoclonal antibodies may block the virus that causes COVID-19 from attaching to human cells thereby making it more difficult for the virus to reproduce and cause harm.
