BCC COVID Infusion Center Patient Information
The Baltimore Convention Center is now operating an outpatient infusion Center to administer monoclonal antibody therapies via intravenous (IV) infusion(through a vein). The Federal Drug Administration (FDA) has approved these treatments for treatment of COVID-19 on an emergency basis.
The monoclonal antibody therapies offered at the BCC COVID Infusion Center include:
- Bamlanivimab (manufactured by Eli Lilly) – Patient Fact Sheet (also available in Spanish)
- A combination of casirivimab and imdevimab, administered simultaneously (more widely known as Regeneron, the manufacturer's name) – Patient Fact Sheet (also available in Spanish)
Bamlanivimab and the casirivimab/imdevimab are investigational medicines approved for use in non-hospitalized people age 12 years and older who meet specific criteria. These criteria include, but are not limited to, mild to moderate symptoms and a high risk for developing severe symptoms or the need for hospitalization.
Both treatments have the same criteria and have been demonstrated to reduce COVID-19 hospitalization or emergency room visits when administered within 10 days of symptom onset.
For more about these treatments and potential side effects, please reference the Patient Fact Sheets, linked above.
Only eligible patients who have been referred by a provider and then approved to receive the treatment will be contacted for scheduling.
Hours: The COVID Infusion Center is open Monday through Saturday, 8 am – 6 pm.
