What medications are available?

There is a treatment for COVID-19, called PaxlovidTM, to be taken if symptoms have developed for less than five days and a positive COVID-19 test is obtained. This treatment is prescribed to certain types of more vulnerable populations who could benefit from it to prevent complications of the disease.

A preventive treatment (pre-exposure prophylaxis), called EvusheldTM, is available for patients who are not currently infected with COVID-19 and who have had no known recent contact with a person infected with COVID-19. This drug may be prescribed for immunocompromised individuals who are unlikely to have an adequate response to vaccination, or for individuals for whom vaccination against COVID-19 is not recommended. It is intended to provide enhanced immunity to the virus.
