Paxlovid Medication

Paxlovid medication requires careful assessment from a physician. The medication is initiated as quickly as possible after coronavirus symptoms have emerged but no later than 5 days from the start of symptoms.

Treatment can be started on the basis of a positive home test and should be verified with laboratory testing as soon as possible. The medication target groups differ from the general COVID 19 infection risk groups.

If you belong or suspect you belong to the Paxlovid medication target groups below, contact your own health centre if you are found to have coronavirus infection or you suspect that you have contracted it. Those in active cancer treatment or patients who are strongly lacking immunity can also contact their own special health care unit via Turku University Hospital Services.
