For the early treatment of COVID‑19
As of December 8, 2022, community pharmacists are now able to prescribe Paxlovid prescriptions to those eligible with COVID-19. More information is available here and eligibility criteria can be found below.
Effective August 15, 2022, delivery of COVID-19 therapeutic remdesivir and preventative Evusheld is available to patients through physician referral to Home and Community Care Support Services Mississauga Halton. Please speak to your health care provider for more information.
Vaccination remains the best defence against COVID-19. Visit COVID-19.Ontario.ca for more information regarding eligibility and to book a COVID-19 vaccine appointment.
Ontarians can now visit local pharmacies for prescriptions of Paxlovid. The anti-viral drug is used to reduce severe outcomes from COVID-19. To be eligible, you must have a positive PCR or rapid test. Eligible recipients must also be 60 years old or older, or 18 – 60 years old and immunocompromised or with a higher risk of severe COVID-19 outcomes with chronic conditions. People who go to a pharmacy to get the drug must seek treatment within five days of symptom onset. If you are eligible, contact your local pharmacy to confirm if they prescribe Paxlovid and how to get a prescription for Paxlovid. Prescriptions can be done at no cost both in person and virtually.
COVID-19 therapeutics can only be administered to eligible patients who meet specific criteria and are referred by a health care provider. The eligibility criteria are provincial, are determined by the Ministry of Health, and may change over time. Speak to your health care provider for more information.
