Covid-19 Follow-up Clinic
Our Covid-19 follow-up clinic is available for high-risk Covid-positive patients, five to seven days after a positive test.
If you've received early treatment such as a monoclonal antibody infusion or antiviral medications, you may still be at risk for complications from Covid-19. Whether you've received your treatment at MedHelp or somewhere else, follow-up treatment is key to preventing complications in the later stages of your illness. Follow-up treatment in the early stages of Covid can also help prevent long Covid.
At our Covid-19 Follow-up Clinic, you can expect to have:
- A chest x-ray
- Relevant lab tests, including D-dimer and CRP
- In-clinic care from compassionate practitioners
Even if you're already starting to feel better, it's important to get treatment to ensure that there is no evidence of worsening disease. 18% of individuals who receive early treatment will need follow-up treatment to prevent future complications.
How to Get Treatment
If you received monoclonal antibody treatment at MedHelp, a nurse should have already scheduled a follow-up appointment at your visit. If you received treatment elsewhere, you are still eligible to receive follow-up treatment in our clinic. Call our Birmingham Highway 280 clinic to schedule an appointment with Dr. Jordan Vaughn.
Follow-up Treatment FAQ
Covid-19 is a disease that progresses in stages, and the best way to prevent complications is to treat it early and throughout the illness. For many, early treatment such as monoclonal antibody infusion, is enough. But aggressive follow-up treatment may be needed to prevent other complications, including long Covid.
You should get follow-up treatment within 5 to 7 days after you tested positive or became symptomatic for Covid-19.
All moderate-to-high-risk patients should have a follow-up visit after testing positive for Covid-19, even if you're starting to feel better. Your labs may indicate treatable issues that may not be evident in symptoms.
