    MHP COVID-19 Update                 DATE: December 18, 2020
     
    UPDATES FROM INCIDENT COMMAND:
    • Covid Vaccines:  Major Hospital expects to begin receiving vaccines sometime in January for public distribution.  Starting this week, our eligible staff began receiving their vaccines at Hancock Regional Hospital in Greenfield. 
    • Bamlanivimab “Bam” monoclonal drug for Covid treatment.  By the end of the day, we will have infused 164 patients with this Eli Lilly monoclonal drug.  We gave a Regeneron infusion to a patient yesterday and that patient is doing well as of today.  Regeneron is a different type of antibody drug used to reduce or stop the viral load in a Covid positive patient.  We have a sufficient supply of both Regeneron and Bamlanivimab for our current needs.
