Access to COVID-19 Therapeutics is Now Available Through “Test to Treat” Program

COVID-19 therapeutics are oral anti-viral medications that can help prevent serious illness, hospitalization or death in individuals at elevated risk for poor outcomes should they get infected with COVID-19.

Through the Federal government’s recently-launched “Test to Treat” program, eligible patients can walk into a limited number of local pharmacies and clinics to get tested and treated on the same visit. A limited number of CVS Minute Clinics in L.A. County are currently participating and can be found here.

If you test positive for COVID-19 and have questions on which treatment is right for you, please contact your medical provider or call the L.A.
