Lee Health reported on Wednesday morning that it no longer has any Sotrovimab, the most effective monoclonal antibody treatment for the COVID-19 omicron variant.

According to Lee Health, there are other antibody treatments for COVID-19, but they are not effective against the new omicron variant.

The Sotrovimab treatment is distributed to healthcare providers by the federal government. Lee Health says that it does not have a timetable for when the treatment will be available again.

Lee Health says that because of the shortage, it is more important than ever to get vaccinated or get a booster shot so to protect yourself against COVID-19 during the most recent surge of the virus.
