Infusion Providers

Welcome! Here you can find resources for sites of care receiving and administering COVID-19 antibody infusions.

Interested in offering COVID-19 antibody therapeutics at your infusion center?

On April 16, 2021, the FDA revoked emergency use authorization for bamlanivimab monotherapy due to the increased prevalence of SARS-CoV-2 variants that are expected to be resistant to bamlanivimab administered alone. This change comes at the request of the manufacturer, Eli Lilly, due to the availability of more efficacious monoclonal antibody therapies, and is not related to any adverse events or safety issuesBamlanivimab is still authorized for use when administered with etesevimab per the EUA. Infusion providers with remaining bamlanivimab inventory should contact AmerisourceBergen to order etesevimab to be paired with the remaining bamlanivimab.   For more information, see the FDA’s Letter of Revocation, and Frequently Asked Questions on the Revocation of the Emergency Use Authorization for Bamlanivimab Administered Alone.
