Three new monoclonal antibody sites coming to South Florida



South Florida – Starting Tuesday, three new state-run sites in South Florida will offer monoclonal antibody treatments for people with COVID-19.

Three among five locations announced Monday by the state’s health department are Markham Park in Sunrise, Miami Dade College’s north campus, and the West Boynton Regional Center in Lake Worth. The others are in Jacksonville and Altamonte Springs.

The sites at Markham Park (16001 W. State Rd. 84, Sunrise), Miami Dade College North Campus (11380 NW 27th Ave., Miami), and West Boynton Recreation Center (6000 Northtree Blvd., Lake Worth) will be open 7 days a week from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Monoclonal antibody therapy treatment is for people who have contracted or been exposed to COVID-19 and has been found largely successful at preventing severe illness, hospitalization, and death in high-risk patients.

According to infectious disease experts, it is not a substitute for vaccination, which remains the best way of preventing the worst effects of COVID-19.

Including a number in South Florida, several locations across the state already offer the treatment.

You can call the Florida Department of Health’s monoclonal antibody treatment support line at 850-344-9637 for more information.
