Monoclonal Antibody Treatments
Monoclonal antibodies, which have received emergency use authorization from the federal government, are the most effective available treatments shown to prevent hospitalization and disease progression from COVID-19.
Criteria for use is broad among people who have a positive test for COVID-19. In addition, people who have been exposed to COVID-19 but have not yet tested positive may be eligible for monoclonal antibodies if:
- They have not been fully vaccinated for COVID-19 OR
- They are not expected to mount an adequate immune response to the COVID-19 vaccine.
If you think you are eligible, fill out the MN Resource Allocation Platform Screening Form. The platform does not make a final decision about who can get a medication. It only decides who may be able to get it. The final decision is up to the healthcare provider at the facility that gives these types of medications. St. Luke’s is authorized to provide monoclonal antibody treatment.
The MN Resource Allocation Platform is currently for patients 12 years of age and older. If you or a loved one may qualify for this treatment, visit the Minnesota Department of Health website for more information and next steps:
