BCC Outpatient COVID Infusion Center
The Baltimore Convention Center is now operating an outpatient infusion Center to administer monoclonal antibody therapies, approved by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) under Emergency Use Authorizations (EUA).
The monoclonal antibody therapies offered at the BCC COVID Infusion Center include:
- Bamlanivimab (manufactured by Eli Lilly)
- A combination of casirivimab and imdevimab, administered simultaneously (more widely known as Regeneron, the manufacturer of these treatments)
Both treatments have the same FDA Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) criteria and have been demonstrated to reduce COVID-19 hospitalization or emergency room visits when administered within 10 days of symptom onset.
Only eligible patients who have been referred by a provider and then approved will receive treatment here.
