What are monoclonal antibodies?
When you get sick, your body makes antibodies to fight the infection. Monoclonal antibodies mimic your body’s natural response to fighting an infection.
Monoclonal antibody treatment is only available for people who have tested positive for COVID-19 and have symptoms like fever, cough, trouble breathing, loss of taste or smell, body aches, or headache.
