 Important Updated Local Information on

Reducing COVID-19 Hospitalizations

Early intervention with monoclonal antibody infusion therapy can shorten the duration of COVID-19 symptoms and reduce the risk of severe illness and hospitalization. This is becoming increasingly important as a surge of patients with the Delta variant continues to strain hospital resources. 

The therapy is available to the following people:

  •  Individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19 and are within ten days of symptom onset
    •    Unvaccinated individuals who have had close contact with a COVID-positive person
    •    Vaccinated individuals who are immunocompromised and have had close contact with a COVID-positive person

If you or a close contact test positive for COVID-19, immediately contact (928) 681-8699 to see if you are eligible for treatment.  Additional information about monoclonal antibody infusion therapy can be found at:

COVID-19 Cases are on the rise in many parts of the U.S., including Mohave County.  Well over 90% of all those who are hospitalized, were not vaccinated.  The Mohave County Health Department continues to urge all residents to get fully vaccinated.  At this point, Mohave County has under 40% vaccinated.  If you haven’t been fully immunized yet, please help our county reach a much higher percentage of vaccinations.  The Delta variant is here and hospitalizations have increased locally.

 Vaccinations are readily available at this time. With some providers, immediate walk ins are available as well. Check providers here–https://www.mohavecounty.us/ContentPage.aspx?id=127&cid=1444&page=2&rid=2230 *
