Some military personnel are assisting Denver Health in treating more Coloradans with COVID-19. Patients were given monoclonal antibodies by the group at a Federico F. Pena Southwest Urgent Care clinic.
For those who have come back positive for COVID-19 and are at risk of becoming very sick, monoclonal antibody therapy can minimize the incidence of severe sickness and hospitalization. The monoclonal antibody clinic at Federico F. Pena Southwest Urgent Care has been operating for a year, but this group of military doctors just started working there last week.
The only hospital in the state where the US military is assisting with antibody injections is Denver Health. Another group of active-duty personnel is stationed at Poudre Valley Hospital in Fort Collins to assist doctors, nurses, and respiratory therapists.
