Public Health is aware of the growing OMICRON variant and is monitoring the situation. At this time, we have no confirmed cases of this variant in our county. It is still unclear if the Omicron variant is more contagious or if symptoms are more severe, and, there is currently no more conclusive data available to assess the effectiveness of vaccines or natural immunity for those with previous SARS-CoV-2 infection that would neutralize the Omicron variant.
MCDPH has been notified of a scam in which citizens receive a call from a person claiming to be employees of the Mohave County Department of Public Health and offering home visits to administer COVID-19 vaccine. The MCDPH does not and will not directly contact residents to offer home-based COVID-19 vaccination appointments.*
IMPORTANT NOTE: As a good reminder, the MCDPH(Mohave County Department of Public Health) only reports confirmed COVID-19 cases and deaths, unlike the ADHS, which reports “probables” as well. Therefore, the county’s numbers and those from the state are not the same.
Even those fully vaccinated can still get COVID-19. The vaccine reduces the severity of the virus and hospitalizations. It does not mean individuals are totally immune from Covid-19.
Updated Current Vaccination Information
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has authorized, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has recommended booster doses of all three COVID-19 vaccines available in the United States.

Monoclonal Antibody Therapy (FDA Emergency Use Authorization)
While vaccines provide the best protection from COVID-19, treatment options such as Monoclonal Antibody therapy can shorten the duration of symptoms and reduce the risk of severe illness and hospitalization.
Monoclonal antibodies, or mAbs, are made in a laboratory to fight a particular infection — in this case, the virus that causes COVID-19 — and are given to patients directly with an infusion or a shot. Your body naturally makes antibodies to fight infection. However, your body may not have antibodies designed to recognize a new virus like the virus that causes COVID-19. That’s why mAb treatment may help patients who are at high risk for severe symptoms or hospitalization.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) to allow the use of monoclonal antibody therapies for the treatment of mild to moderate COVID19 in certain high-risk patients. Some people who have been exposed to COVID-19 may qualify for treatment even before testing positive for COVID-19. This treatment is not a substitute for vaccination against COVID-19.
General eligibility information is below.
- Individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19 and are within ten days of 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
Each facility has its own standards for administering the Monoclonal Antibody Therapy. Please visit their respective websites or call the number provided below for more information.

Veklury® (Remdesivir) (FDA approved)
Veklury® (Remdesivir) works by slowing the replication of the COVID-19 virus, thereby reducing the amount of virus circulating in the body.
Veklury® (Remdesivir) is approved for hospitalized patients age 12 years and older who weigh at least 88 pounds, with more severe COVID-19 disease. Your hospital care team will decide if you are eligible to receive this treatment.
