Rockwall County Monoclonal Antibody Treatment Center

Rockwall County now has a monoclonal antibody treatment center located on Rockwall County property between the Library and Courthouse near 1111 E Yellow Jacket Ln.

This treatment center opened Monday, September 6th, and is operated by MDLabs, the Rockwall County partner that administered vaccines out of Wilkerson Stadium.  This treatment center will aid in keeping people with COVID-19 out of local hospitals.  Treatment works best if a COVID-positive person receives the monoclonal antibody treatment within the first five days of symptom onset. However, individuals are eligible to receive treatment up to 10 days after symptom onset. Patients must be observed for one hour after treatment to ensure no adverse effects are experienced.

It is preferred that patients have a referral from a doctor and schedule an appointment. However, there is limited capability to assess and provide a patient referral on-site if necessary.  There is limited capacity for walkups. However, walkup availability is not guaranteed. Walkups without a referral will take longer to process than someone with an appointment and doctor’s referral. MDLabs will collect insurance information and file an administration claim; however, a co-pay/payment will not be collected. Insurance companies are paying administration fees for the antibody treatments just as they do with vaccines. Filing for the administration fee is how MDLabs can support Rockwall County, and no one will be denied treatment based on insurance coverage.

A wonderful new addition to the McLendon-Chisholm community is Rosini Vineyards, located on 25 acres at 411 State Highway 205 within the city limits.

If you have not made a visit to this beautiful venue yet, you need to do so,” said Mayor Keith Short. “Local residents and owners Greg and Carol Rosini have invested in their passion, and this love an commitment to quality and excellence shows.”

In fact, the Rosini’s have already won a silver medal for their Blanc du Bois dry and Cabernet Sauvignon in The Lone Star International Wine Competition.  The Rosini’s one-of-a-kind wines are made from grapes grown on the property’s vineyard, as well as from the high plains, east Texas and central Texas.

There is a tasting room and barrel room for sampling the Rosini Vineyards blends, with a menu that includes a variety of flatbreads, paninis, and small bites. Reservations are not required, but recommended for groups of six or more.

The property is also available for private events, and includes a four-bedroom, five-bath Ranch house with a pool that can be reserved via VRBO.
