As part of our partnership with the Pennsylvania Department of Health, we are able to dispense oral antiviral treatments for COVID-19.
We have doses of both COVID-19 oral antivirals in stock— Merck’s Molnupiravir and Pfizer’s Paxlovid.
These medications are available by prescription only for the treatment of mild-to-moderate COVID-19 for individuals who are at high risk for progression to severe COVID-19. Molnupiravir is authorized for use in patients over 18 years and Paxlovid is authorized for patients ages 12 or older who weigh at least 88 pounds. The FDA recommends that treatment should be initiated as soon as possible after diagnosis of COVID-19 and within five days of symptom onset.
Though most insurances are not yet paying anything for these medications, we are dispensing them to patients at no charge. By dispensing these medications, Springfield Pharmacy aims to decrease the rate of hospitalization and death of patients with COVID-19.
If you have any questions regarding COVID-19 oral antivirals, talk to a member of our staff today or contact your healthcare provider.
