Treatment Options

ADHS has launched a new website for treatments in Arizona to complement the current monoclonal antibodies website.

ADHS – Everyone – Monoclonal Antibodies (mAbs) (azdhs.gov)

ADHS – Everyone – Find Treatment (azdhs.gov)

ADHS – Everyone – Antivirals (azdhs.gov)

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 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 standards for administering Monoclonal Antibody Therapy. Please visit their respective websites or call the number provided below for more information.
