First authorized by the FDA in November 2020, Regeneron’s monoclonal antibody treatment is a popular way for those infected with COVID-19 to mitigate the risk of experiencing severe symptoms. The treatment consists of an IV infusion of casirivimab and imdevimab. Though Covid cases in Flagler County are quite low on the tail end of the Delta variant, there’s still a demand for locations to receive the treatment now that Palm Coast’s Daytona State campus location is no longer operating.
The bad news is, there are no treatment centers in Flagler County per the Department of Health’s interactive map. But there are still locations within a day’s drive. Some of the close locations to Flagler county are:
- Jacksonville – Jacksonville Library (304 N Main St, 32202)
- Jacksonville – Joseph Lee Center (5120 Perry St, 32208_
