The Power of Antibodies
Monoclonal antibodies, or mAbs, are man-made proteins that help your body fight off the virus that causes COVID-19. In fact, just a one-time mAb treatment can help keep you from getting sicker and going to the hospital.
ARE YOU ELIGIBLE FOR mAbs?
You may be eligible if you have tested positive for COVID-19, are 12 years of age or older (and at least 88 pounds), and are at a greater risk of developing severe COVID-19 symptoms. The list of high-risk characteristics has recently expanded to include many more people.**
Not sure if you qualify?
Contact your healthcare provider to see if you’re eligible for mAbs.
