A primary care doctor referral is not needed. You will be evaluated during your appointment to determine the most appropriate treatment for you. That could be the monoclonal antibodies treatment, IV fluids to boost your immune system, or other Covid-19 treatments. They do require a positive COVID test to receive monoclonal antibodies, which they can perform in clinic if you have not had one, for an additional charge. The Antigen test takes about 15 minutes. The cost also includes a potential appointment to follow up later if needed.
Although you can walk in without an appointment, they recommend that you apply for an appointment online or call and talk with them first to ensure that you will be seen in a timely manner. Scheduled appointments are given priority.
Patients are given a card with a 24/7 phone number if follow-up is needed.
The cost does not include a follow up appointment nor does it include the cost for a Vancouver Clinic primary care doctor appointment to first evaluate you and determine if you have sufficient comorbidities to qualify. Treatment appointments can only be made if a Vancouver Clinic primary care doctor first prescribes this treatment. No other Covid-19 treatment is available.
No follow up appointment. You might receive a follow up call weeks later, normally not sooner since the staff is busy.
Monoclonal Antibodies are one of a variety of early treatment options offered locally.
The state is discontinuing one antibodies treatment, Regeneron, and replacing it with another, Sotrovimab, which was recently granted an Emergency Use Authorization by the FDA as a more effective treatment against the Omicron variant.
Various Monoclonal Antibodies have been used for years to boost our immune system's ability to fight specific pathogens. The first version, Regeneron was formulated to fight the Covid-19 virus prior to the Omicron variant and granted a FDA Emergency Use Authorization. The updated Monoclonal Antibodies version, Sotrovimab, should be available as before from local early treatment providers.
This treatment can only be administered within 10 days of first Covid symptoms. Early treatment is best. The sooner, the better.
The treatment is given with an IV and takes about 30 minutes. You stay put for an additional 60 minutes while the provider ensures that you are not one of the few people who may have an allergic reaction. If needed, they are prepared to solve that problem on the spot.
