New Hampshire to Receive 3 FEMA Monoclonal Antibody Teams

Published on

On December 29, Governor Chris Sununu and DHHS Commissioner Lori Shibinette announced that New Hampshire has received confirmation from FEMA that the state is set to receive three monoclonal antibody teams at the beginning of the new year.

On January 3, 2022, FEMA is deploying three teams dedicated to administering monoclonal antibodies to several hospitals in New Hampshire.

“We pushed FEMA and secured three monoclonal antibody teams that will help save lives,” said Governor Chris Sununu. “I would like to thank the Federal Government for listening to our calls and sending these resources as we continue to fight this winter surge.”

“Providing additional teams to expand capacity to administer these time-critical treatments will ease some of the burden on our already strained hospital staff,” DHHS Commissioner Lori Shibinette said. “We are grateful for the assistance to help our hospital system and save lives.”

“Patients are referred for treatment with monoclonal antibodies at infusion sites by their primary care provider and are accessible at some urgent care centers,” said Dr. Jonathan Ballard, Chief Medical Officer at DHHS. “This assistance will reduce the number of patients needing hospitalization.”

A map of locations administering monoclonal antibodies in New Hampshire is on the NH COVID-19 Treatment Resources website.

Last week, Governor Sununu pressed the Administration to send additional teams to NH to administer monoclonal antibodies, and previously was successful in pressing the federal government for additional shipments of monoclonal antibodies for NH.
