LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- Nevada's COVID-19 Task Force and health leaders are working to get the word out that more Americans are now eligible for treatment for COVID-19.
The Food and Drug Administration modified its Emergency Use Authorization to allow the following patients to access monoclonal or polyclonal antibody therapy, all to prevent severe illness, or in case of exposure, prevent actual infection:
- High-risk patients who are diagnosed with COVID-19
- High-risk patients who are exposed to COVID-19
- Must be 12 and over
The FDA modified its criteria to help doctors expand conditions for whom someone may fall into a high risk category, and help patients access care to prevent hospitalization.
