COVID-19 INFUSION CENTER: FACTS AND BENEFITS
COVID-19 is a highly contagious virus, which can affect people of all ages, races and demographics. Symptoms of COVID-19 can be mild to severe. Individuals over the age of 65 and those with co-morbidities are at a higher risk for developing more serious complications leading to hospitalization or even death.
Monoclonal antibody infusion is a new emergency treatment available to those with mild to moderate COVID-19 symptoms who are at higher risk of worsening conditions and are within the first 10 days of diagnosis. There are two medication combinations available for this treatment: Bamlanivimab (BAM)+Etesevimab and Regeneron.
Monoclonal antibodies work the same as the body’s natural defense, only faster. Monoclonal antibodies enter the body and begin to fight off the virus immediately.
Patients diagnosed with COVID-19 and who meet at least one of the following criteria may be eligible to receive the monoclonal antibody infusion.
- 65 years of age and older
- 55 years of age and older and have co-morbidities (Cardiovascular Disease, Hypertension, or COPD, etc
- Anyone with BMI over 35, Chronic Kidney Disease, Diabetes, or Immunosuppressive Treatment
- Ages 12-17 weighing a minimum of 40 kg and have Sickle Cell Disease, Congenital or Acquired Heart Disease, Neurodevelopmental Disorders (Cerebral Palsy), Asthma or dependent on items like tracheostomy or gastrostomy
Bamlanivimab+Etesevimab or Regereron monoclonal antibody infusion is administered via IV solution through the vein, entering the blood stream.
- Treatment with monoclonal antibody IV infusion may help improve COVID-19 symptoms sooner and lessen the risk of patient hospitalizations and decrease the risk of mortality.
- Most patients note an improvement of symptoms within 24 hours; reporting feeling less fatigued, a decrease in headaches and body aches, and improvement in shortness of breath.
- Treatment is outpatient and complete in approximately 2.5 hours, including 1 hour of monitoring for any potential allergic reactions or side effects.
- Patients are sent home after treatment with a pulse oximeter to monitor their own oxygen level and will receive a follow-up call post-infusion to monitor their status.
- True Health is the only health center in Seminole County offering this service, working in collaboration with the Florida Department of Health in Seminole County and Seminole County Emergency Management.
