Access to the Covid-19 Pill

 

Adults who have mild to moderate COVID-19 confirmed by a PCR test or RAT test verified by the prescribing doctor and who can start treatment within five days of symptom onset, can access PBS-subsidised Lagevrio if:

 

  • They are 65 years of age or older, with two other risk factors for severe disease (as increasing age is a risk factor, patients who are 75 years of age of older only need to have one other risk factor); or
  • They identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander origin, and are 50 years of age or older with two other risk factors for severe disease, or
  • They are moderately to severely immunocompromised.

 

   

 

NOTE: If a patient does not fit the above criteria, the treatment can still be offered on a private script so please call our friendly team to discuss and arrange a telehealth appointment,

Please book a Telehealth appointment and either:

      1. send us a photo of your recent RAT test or
      2. a copy of your PCR test (if it is not done in our practice)

We can prescribe you oral anti-viral medication to help you get better from a COVID-19 infection.
