Monoclonal Antibody Regional Center (MARC)

Medically eligible symptomatic COVID-19 positive patients whose COVID-19 symptoms have developed within the last 10 days can receive monoclonal antibody treatment at the Monoclonal Antibody Regional Center. Treatment will be provided at no cost to the patient, regardless of health insurance or immigration status. The MARC is available to those who live or work in San Diego County. Individuals who are 65 years of age or older and whose COVID-19 symptoms have developed within the last 10 days may call (619) 685-2500 directly to schedule an appointment at the MARC.

To refer patients who meet FDA’s EUA criteria, health professionals or their delegated medical staff should complete the referral form (using Chrome, Firefox, or Safari) and either call (619) 685-2500 or fax the completed form to (760) 739-2851 to schedule a patient’s appointment. View the MARC Referral Messaging Tips for Providers for easy ways to encourage patients to receive monoclonal antibody treatment. 

The MARC is open 7 days a week from 8:00am to 8:00pm and is located at the Palomar Medical Center Downtown at 555 East Valley Parkway, Escondido, CA 92025. Please provide your patient with an FDA mAb EUA Fact Sheet for Patients, Parents and Caregivers (Spanish) as well as a completed copy of the referral form (if available) to bring to his or her appointment. Patients must wear a mask.

Monoclonal antibodies have been shown in clinical trials to reduce COVID-19-related hospitalization and emergency room visits. Bamlanivimab, a monoclonal antibody therapy from Eli Lilly, has been authorized for emergency use by FDA to treat mild to moderate COVID-19 in adults and pediatric patients (12 years of age and older weighing at least 40 kg) with positive results of direct SARS-CoV-2 viral testing, and who are at high risk for progressing to severe COVID-19 and/or hospitalization.
