DCMC receives vaccines, antibody treatments

The fight against COVID-19 in Door County is getting stronger. Door County Medical Center announced on Wednesday it has received its first shipment of the COVID-19 vaccine. In accordance with guidelines outlined by the Centers for Disease Control, health care workers and long-term care patients will be the first to get vaccinated.



For those who end up contracting the virus, Door County Medical Center are able to distribute antibody treatments.  Bamlanivimab, a monoclonal antibody, and casirivimab and imdevimab, a polyclonal antibody, can be distributed to certain patients in an effort to reduce complications and possibly prevent hospitalizations. Door County Medical Center President and CEO Brian Stephens sang the praises of bamlanivimab earlier this month when they were first able to distribute the treatment.

The Food and Drug Administration recently gave the three antibody treatments and two different vaccines emergency use approval in the country’s efforts to limit the impact of COVID-19.
