Monoclonal antibodies: I pulled together a few links from prior DU posts...

...because there have been a couple of current posts from people who may be showing symptoms of COVID, and my recollection from Rachel Maddow’s excellent segments on the topic is that monoclonal infusions will help tremendously if done in the first 10 days. So there is need to both get tested early, and to locate places to receive an infusion if you are positive for COVID.

This is a partial list, but I wanted to consolidate it and bookmark it for future reference. I would appreciate it if anyone who has a link to Rachel Maddow’s two reports would post it here as well.

Thank you.

While in the early stages (10 days) tell your doc you all want Monoclonal Antibodies ...

...especially if you have comorbidities like Diabetes, heart disease, or obesity.

From Rachel Maddow show 2-17-2021. It’s an infusion, not an injection or pill. It works. We all thought it was only for Trump and his cronies, but as it happens, 70% of the supply is going unused.

If your doc is unaware, do some research yourself.

Go to combatcovid.hhs.gov
for sites that have it — I assume they can ship to a hospital or clinic if one is not close.

Her show that evening kind of knocked my socks off, and I made sure to write this info down.

Best of luck to you all. Fingers crossed.

I searched for infusion centers covid monoclonal Florida . . .

I know this treatment is recommended for anyone with mild covid symptoms within the first few days. You may want to ask your doctor for a referral. As you can see below, Adventhealth in FL administers this treatment and I'm sure if you did a search you would find an infusion center that does this that is in your area. I believe the treatment may be free and it is supposed to be the best thing to avoid serious illness.

Here is an HHS website showing where this treatment is offered:

4. My local hospital has an infusion section in their related clinic.

I understand it's time consuming, and hour plus travel time but it is so worth it.

A few years back my Mother had a resistant bladder infection. I took off work to pick her up and wait while she had the infusion. Pain in the butt, boring for me, four visits. Yes, yes yes. But it worked.

If your hospital has the covid monoclonal antibodies, ask for it!!
