TALLAHASSEE (FCV) – Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) announced that 15,000 doses of Regeneron have been allocated to Florida. DeSantis discussed how vital these life saving therapeutics are and requested that the Biden Administration deliver at least 30,000 doses per week.
In response, the state of Florida had been notified that planning had begun to send 30,000 more monoclonal antibody doses to Florida. Alongside that, the Florida Division of Emergency Management contacted the U.S. Health and Human Services offering logistical support to help allocate the doses.
“But for the federal government’s decision to restrict supply of monoclonal antibody treatments to Florida, my administration would have already opened additional monoclonal antibody treatment sites throughout the state,” said Governor Ron DeSantis.
“Before the Biden Administration seized control of the monoclonal supply after Florida pioneered its widespread use and demonstrated its efficacy, approximately 30,000 doses per week were being administered to Floridians, saving countless lives. We will rapidly deploy the 15,000 doses that we have now secured, but the Biden Administration is still obstructing the state of Florida’s ability to manage our own supply of monoclonal antibodies and I will continue to seek additional doses for Floridians.”
The Biden Administration has been in charge of allocating the monoclonal antibodies to the states. The Administration is also responsible for cutting shipments of the treatment to Florida.
DeSantis has also announced that the state of Florida will be providing up to one million rapid tests for residents of assisted living facilities and nursing homes.
