Lee Health reported Wednesday morning that it no longer has Sotrovimab, the most effective monoclonal antibody treatment for the omicron COVID-19 variant.
According to Lee Health, there are other antibody treatments for COVID-19, but they are not effective against the new omicron variant.
Sotrovimab treatment is distributed by the federal government to healthcare providers. Lee Health says it has no timetable for when the treatment will be available again.
Lee Health says that because of the shortage, it’s more important than ever to get a shot or booster shot to protect yourself against COVID-19 during the most recent virus outbreak.
