COVID-19 For Individuals and Families

Concerned you may have COVID-19?

If you believe you are sick with COVID-19, we’re here with testing, useful tools, and resources to help you access the care and information you need. Get tested if you are able! The first step is to get tested.

Antiviral Treatment Information

If you test positive for COVID-19, you may be eligible for oral antiviral treatments such as Paxlovid or Lagevrio. Oral antivirals are medications (pills) that stop the virus that causes COVID-19 from making copies of itself in your body and help you feel better faster. The medication is available with a prescription from your health care provider and needs to be taken within 5 days of your symptoms starting.

If you are unable to afford antiviral medication for COVID-19, you may be eligible for financial assistance through Patient Assistance Programs.

Paxlovid

Pfizer has a Patient Assistance Program for Paxlovid called PAXCESS. This program will help you pay for your medication if you do not have insurance, or if your insurance does not cover the cost of the medication.
