Learn About the COVID-19 Antiviral Drug Called Paxlovid

COVID-19 continues to be a constant threat to every citizen of San Diego. Even if you are fully vaccinated, you could still develop severe symptoms from COVID-19 if you have an underlying illness. That is why Pfizer was quick to create a potent antiviral drug to inhibit the growth of COVID-19 in patients before they end up in a life-threatening situation.

You may recognize the name “Pfizer” as the first company to develop a COVID-19 vaccine. Now they have developed a COVID-19 antiviral drug called Paxlovid. It has already been found to be 90% effective in protecting patients with the highest risk of dying from COVID-19. The World Health Organization has even given the drug its strongest recommendation possible.

Pharmacies currently have abundant Paxlovid supplies because doctors have stagnated in prescribing the drug to their COVID-19 patients. But thanks to the Biden Administration, more public awareness exists about the drug and its potential to save lives. Now people are encouraged to talk with their doctors about Paxlovid as a potential treatment for saving their life.
