Omicron Surge Drains Texas of Monoclonal Antibody Supply


SAN ANGELO, TX – Multiple reports indicate that Texas has run out of COVID-19 monoclonal antibodies.

The supply of the antibody treatment is controlled by the federal government. As of Dec. 27 infusion centers across the state will be unable to offer treatments.

One of the main concoctions used in the treatment is Sotrovimab. Infusion centers in Austin, El Paso, Fort Worth, San Antonio and The Woodlands have all gone through their supply. Sotrovimab is the only antibody treatment believed to be effective against the omicron variant.

Texas has run out of its supply of monoclonal antibodies, and infusion centers in the state will be unable to offer the treatment until more shipments are sent out in January.

Currently in Texas the Omicron variant has been spreading like wildfire. In San Angelo today the health department reported nearly 200 new positive cases. For more on today's COVID-19 numbers click here.

Dang, do I really hate being right all the time. I told you this would happen, and it was obvious to anyone with any foresight.


“The supply of the antibody treatment is controlled by the federal government”.

And yet another epic failure by the Biden administration. Oh that’s right, according to Biden no one had a clue that variants would emerge…although that’s what viruses do just “follow the science” ;)

Blame the unvaccinated, they are the ones that require the treatment in the first place. But yet again you blame the libs on anything you can. 

Trump failed to control the supply of ventilators, masks and other medical equipment in the beginning of the pandemic, will you blame him for those short comings too? Or will you ignore that?

"according to Biden no one had a clue that variants would emerge"

I can't find Biden actually saying this, can you provide me with where you found this information? We have already had another variant, delta, short memory you have there.

If you say that you "follow the science" and acknowledge "that's what viruses do" then why won't you "follow the science" for any of their other recommendations? 

Blame whoever you wish…the article makes it clear who’s TRULY responsible for the shortage ;)

Will you acknowledge that trump was responsible for the ventilator, mask and medical equipment shortage at the beginning of the pandemic?

So you don't have any direct evidence of Biden saying no one expected other variants? Didn't think so.

The supply didn't run out, the Dum-acrats told the Feds to lock it up and hide it so they could add more to their death count they are working towards......

If this was true (it's not, you are an admitted troll) what is the benefit? Why purposefully kill off American citizens to "get a higher death count?"

"dum-acrats" hehe, almost as funny as the lets go biden thing. Only proving, yet again, that republicans are children and do not care about anything but "owning the libs", as I am sure your response to this comment will prove as well.

Shortage in tests also apparently Biden didn’t see THAT coming either ;)

Like when trump ran out of ventilators and medical equipment for doctors and started auctioning them off to states in order to line his own pockets? He also excluded blue states because he is a petty child that does not care about America or it's citizens, only making more money, his 120+ million dollar campaign credit card fraud proves that.

Oh please. That was according to Cuomo who sent covid infected people into nursing homes which caused untold thousands of deaths ;)

And yet you believe every word he said when he was obviously just trying to cover his ass.

Typical ;)

Where did I say I believed anything he said?
