DeSantis has said the state will have 21 monoclonal antibody treatment centers by the end of this week. One these centers will be held at Fellowship Church in High Springs. In a post on its Facebook page, the church said, “Thankful to be serving our community.”
The site will be open for treatment, which will be free, seven days a week. In a press conference on Aug. 23, DeSantis said that people do not need prescriptions to receive treatment, and he emphasized that monoclonal antibody treatment is not a substitute for getting the vaccine.
Moreover, the treatment is something that people need to pursue before their symptoms become severe. Said DeSantis, “By the time you get very, very ill and require hospitalization, it’s probably too late for this to work….the sooner you do it, the better you’re going to be.”
