Individuals at high risk of severe illness and eligible for antivirals are encouraged to see their GP to arrange a plan in the event they have COVID-19 symptoms.

These medicines are prescription only. A GP can assess if you need these medicines and prescribe them for you or refer you to a hospital.

Plan ahead by checking your eligibility with your GP, so that you are prepared if you get COVID-19.

COVID-19 antiviral medicines work best if you take them as soon as you get symptoms or within 5 days of getting sick. This is why it is important to test for COVID-19 soon as you notice any symptoms. You should take the medicine even if your symptoms are mild.

It is not safe to share your medicine with others or take medicine that has been prescribed for someone else as it can have dangerous side effects if taken with other medicines or supplements.
