New COVID-19 antibody treatment centers have opened in the Dallas and Texarkana areas, but hospitals remain full of COVID patients.

  • New COVID-19 antibody treatment centers have opened in the Dallas and Texarkana areas. More than 20 such clinics have opened in Texas in September.
  • The clinics treat people with mild to moderate cases of COVID-19, but hospitals remain full of COVID patients. Since the beginning of school, more children have the illness.
  • Health officials caution that a vaccination is the best defense against COVID-19, and that the availability of antibody treatments should not justify avoidance of vaccination and other preventive measures.
