Florida

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Governor Ron DeSantis announced Wednesday the opening of a new monoclonal antibody therapy treatment site.

The new location is in Pembrooke Pines and will be open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

“We are working to raise awareness about monoclonal antibodies because they save lives and reduce severe illness and risk of hospitalization,” said Governor Ron DeSantis. “Today, I am proud to further expand access to treatment with the opening of a monoclonal antibody treatment site in Broward County. We will continue to open more sites to support Floridians’ ability to receive this treatment which has been proven to be safe and effective.”

The governor, who was joined by Florida Division of Emergency Management Director Kevin Guthrie and Chief Medical Officer Dr. Kenneth Scheppke, urged Floridians to use the monoclonal antibody treatment soon after diagnosis.
