FDA announces Evusheld is not currently authorized for emergency use in the U.S. as of 1/26/23
- Evusheld is unlikely to protect against 90% of current circulating variants causing infection.
- COVID virus can mutate over time, resulting in certain products not working against certain variants. This is the case with Evusheld and prompted the changes to authorization by the FDA.
- If infected with COVID please seek medical attention. There are several treatments – Paxlovid and Lagevrio – that are expected to work against currently circulating variants.
- We will provide further updates as new information becomes available from the FDA.
If you have any questions, please contact the office at 281-766-7886 or visit the FDA website.
