JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-FORT SAM HOUSTON, Texas –
At the request of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, one monoclonal antibody infusion team, consisting of approximately 15 active duty military medical personnel, deployed to Utah.
U.S. Army North, under U.S. Northern Command’s oversight, will provide operational command of the team.
“These fifteen military medical personnel, who comprise the first monoclonal antibody infusion team the Department of Defense has deployed, join approximately ten thousand others who have supported the whole-of-government response to the COVID-19 pandemic since March 2020,” said Lt. Gen. John R. Evans Jr., ARNORTH commander. “Whether it is defending the nation, or defeating this virus and saving lives, we will use every tool in our arsenal to protect the American people.”
The military medical personnel will include a medical doctor, nurses, and other healthcare workers from the U.S. Air Force.
This team, which will support Intermountain St. George Regional Hospital in St. George, Utah, joins four other teams currently working in four hospitals – one in Alabama, one in Idaho, and two in Washington.
ARNORTH is the joint force land component command of USNORTHCOM.
