The Northwest Missouri Healthcare Coalition has opened a monoclonal antibody infusion center in Cameron, Missouri.
The Infusion Center opened on August 25 and will operate for the next thirty days, or longer if needed, at 214 McElwain Drive (the old Cameron Mutual building) in Cameron.
Chief Nursing Officer of Cameron Regional Medical Center says the purpose of the Cameron mAB Infusion Center is to make this treatment more accessible to individuals in the region.
Monoclonal antibodies are laboratory-made proteins that mimic the immune system’s ability to fight harmful viruses. Infusions are authorized for people who have tested positive for COVID-19 and are at high risk for developing severe illness that may result in hospitalization, including people who are 65 or older or who have certain chronic medical conditions.
