Why is Gov Abbott receiving antibody treatment with no symptoms and being vaccinated?

https://www.cnbc.com/2021/08/17/texa...for-covid.html

Shitty headline because he is vaxxed and has no symptoms.

1- why is he even being tested? Why would you get a test with no symptoms? I know NO ONE even crazed pro lockdown people doing this.

2- why is he getting the antibody treatment with no symptoms? Also why is he getting the antibody treatment with being COVID-Vaccinated? Isnt the vaccines now stated purpose to tame symptoms and lower hospitalization?

Here is a story about it, I guess it might be because he can.

The antibody treatment that Abbott is receiving ó a cocktail made by Regeneron Pharmaceuticals ó is one that Abbott has increasingly promoted. Hoping to prevent hospitalizations and reserve hospital capacity for the most serious cases, Texas recently opened nine antibody infusion centers throughout the state that use the Regeneron antibodies.

It was not exactly clear why Abbott was receiving the Regeneron treatment if he was not experiencing symptoms. The Regeneron antibodies are recommended to treat "mild to moderate COVID-19" in people 12 years and older who have tested positive and "are at high risk for progressing to severe COVID-19."

You can, but he is barred from disclosing.

The man is in a wheelchair

Think about it......... if you have never known anybody in a wheelchair you may not know. But he is prone to infections etc. Similar to bedridden patients

I am sure that could be considered a co-morbidity

We also don't know his whole medical history. He may suffer from some other diseases that we don't know about.

I don't see it as a problem. Give it to everybody if you ask me

That's ok. Big pharma still gets approved $$$$

And that's all that counts.

Any treatments that might work just as well, but don't provide big pharma with big $$$, will be ignored. Such goes our evil capitalist health system.

Damn, you are dense...along with all of your ilk. Why are you people so damned worried about everybody else??? Do you even realize the lie you are caught up in??? You tell EVERYBODY they have to wear a mask and vaccinate...because it works. If these things work so well...why are you so worried about everybody else conforming??? Never mind...I answered my own question.

Maybe my memory is off, but I'm pretty sure Trump got antibody treatments also.
