What treatments are available?
While staying up-to-date with COVID-19 vaccines and boosters gives us the most effective protection from COVID-19, medical research continues to identify a variety of treatments that can help reduce the chances of getting really sick, being hospitalized, or dying from COVID-19. Treatments have been either approved or authorized for emergency use by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and must be prescribed by a health care provider. Talk with a health care provider to determine if you are eligible.
Types of treatments available:
Visit Oregon Health Authority to learn more about specific medications that are available.
Where can I find treatments?

When should I get treatments?
If you don’t have COVID-19 but want to prevent severe infection including hospitalization and death, it’s important to get vaccinated and stay up-to-date on boosters. Talk with a health care provider about what’s available.
Getting treatments early in your infection will improve the treatment’s effectiveness, help lessen symptoms and shorten recovery times. Oral treatments must be started within 5 days of the beginning of symptoms.
Do I need a prescription?
Yes, you’ll need a prescription for these treatments. A health care provider can give you a prescription. Some pharmacists are also able to provide treatments directly at designated treatment centers in the Treatments Finder.
