COVID-19 Therapeutics: Resources for Health Care Professionals and Public Health Officials
COVID-19 therapeutics can be used to prevent or treat eligible non-hospitalized patients who have mild to moderate COVID-19 symptoms. Prevention and early treatment for eligible patients can help improve patient outcomes, reduce stress on health care facilities, and even save lives. For details on patient eligibility, see the
Side-by-Side Overview of Therapeutics Authorized or Approved for the Treatment of Mild to Moderate COVID-19.
HHS/ASPR purchased supplies of COVID-19 therapeutic products for outpatient use. Now that these products have transitioned to commercial market, HHS continues to work with state and territorial health departments as well as national health care and medical organizations and associations to maximize access to COVID-19 treatments.
On November 1, 2023, Lagevrio and Paxlovid became commercially available, and patient assistance programs are now available for eligible individuals. To learn more about these programs and about HHS distribution timelines of HHS-procured inventory, please see
Sunsetting the U.S. Government COVID-19 Therapeutics Distribution Program.
