As you are 70 years of age or older, you are at a higher risk of becoming severely unwell with COVID-19, and you are eligible for medication to help reduce your risk of serious illness or hospitalisation.
What you should do:
- Treatment should start as soon as possible after testing positive for COVID-19 and within the first 5 days of becoming unwell
- You should take the medication even if your symptoms are mild or you do not have any symptoms
- Contact your GP or a GP Respiratory Clinic for assessment and let the clinic know you have COVID-19 and that you think you are eligible for COVID-19 medication
