COVID-19 Treatment Options

What are the new oral COVID-19 antiviral medications and how do I know if I qualify for treatment?

Paxlovid and Molnupiravir are newly authorized antiviral COVID-19 medicines that are given in a prescription pill regimen. These are the first oral antiviral treatments that have been given Emergency Use Authorization for adults (Molnupiravir) and children 12 years and older (Paxlovid) who test positive for COVID-19 and who have at least one risk factor for serious disease from COVID-19.

Both Paxlovid and Molnupiravir are prescribed in a five-day pill regimen.

Patients must consult a physician to determine if either medication is appropriate for their situation and obtain a prescription.
