New, lifesaving oral antiviral treatments are now available for people at high risk of becoming very sick from COVID-19. Australians are encouraged to check their eligibility and speak to their healthcare professional about COVID-19 oral antiviral treatments that can be taken at home, as they need to be started early after testing positive. While vaccination against COVID-19 is the first and best defence, some people are at higher risk of becoming very unwell if they contract the virus. The new ‘oral antiviral treatments’ campaign informs the community, particularly those who are eligible, about oral treatments’ availability and how to access them.
You can check your eligibility for oral COVID-19 treatments.
