FACT SHEET FOR PATIENTS, PARENTS AND CAREGIVERS EMERGENCY USE AUTHORIZATION (EUA) OF REGEN-COVTM (casirivimab and imdevimab) FOR CORONAVIRUS DISEASE 2019 (COVID-19)

You are being given a medicine called REGEN-COV (casirivimab and imdevimab) for the treatment or post-exposure prevention of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). SARS-CoV-2 is the virus that causes COVID-19. This Fact Sheet contains information to help you understand the potential risks and potential benefits of taking REGEN-COV.
Receiving REGEN-COV may benefit certain people with COVID-19 and may help prevent certain people who have been exposed to someone who is infected with SARS-CoV-2 from getting SARS-CoV-2 infection, or may prevent certain people who are at high risk of exposure to someone who is infected with SARS-CoV-2 from getting SARS-CoV-2 infection. 
 
Read this Fact Sheet for information about REGEN-COV. Talk to your healthcare provider if you have questions. It is your choice to receive REGEN-COV or stop at any time.
 
WHAT IS COVID-19?
 
COVID-19 is caused by a virus called a coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2. People can get COVID-19 through contact with another person who has the virus.
 
COVID-19 illnesses have ranged from very mild (including some with no reported symptoms) to severe, including illness resulting in death. While information so far suggests that most COVID-19 illness is mild, serious illness can happen and may cause some of your other medical conditions to become worse. People of all ages with severe, long-lasting (chronic) medical conditions like heart disease, lung disease, and diabetes, for example, and other conditions including obesity, seem to be at higher risk of being hospitalized for COVID-19. Older age, with or without other conditions, also places people at higher risk of being hospitalized for COVID19.
 
WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF COVID-19?
 
The symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, cough, and shortness of breath, which may appear 2 to 14 days after exposure. Serious illness including breathing problems can occur and may cause your other medical conditions to become worse.
 
WHAT IS REGEN-COV (casirivimab and imdevimab)?
 
REGEN-COV is an investigational medicine used in adults and adolescents (12 years of age and older who weigh at least 88 pounds (40 kg)) who are at high risk for severe COVID-19, including hospitalization or death for:
• treatment of mild to moderate symptoms of COVID-19
• post-exposure prevention of COVID-19 in persons who are: 
  o not fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (Individuals are considered to be fully vaccinated 2 weeks after their second vaccine dose in a 2-dose series [such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines], or 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine [such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine]), or, 
  o are not expected to build up enough of an immune response to the complete COVID-19 vaccination (for example, someone with immunocompromising

I'm not sure whether vaccinated people can get it or not. But yes, it's mainly for the unvaccinated, but it too, follows the same EUA (Emergency Use Authorization) act policies as all the other vaccines offer!
