The #Regeneron #Antibody product that the individuals received was the same one that was administered to #President #Trump when he became infected, according to the state’s COVID-19 #Czar #Dr. #Clay #Marsh.

#All individuals that received the antibody have been contacted or are in the process of being contacted. The DHHR will also follow-up regularly with all individuals who received the antibody as an added precaution. These individuals will be offered the vaccine as soon as possible with a priority status.

“The moment that we were notified of what happened, we acted right away to correct it, and we immediately reviewed and strengthened our protocols to enhance our distribution process to prevent this from happening again,” said #Maj. #Gen. #James #Hoyer, #Adjutant #General of the #West #Virginia #National #Guard. “I remain incredibly proud of all that our team has accomplished. #Our number one goal has been to save lives, and, as we continue to ramp up distribution of the vaccine all across the state, we continue to save more and more lives every single day.”
