COVID-19 Treatment: Please work with your primary care doctor to determine eligibility. Public Health does not provide COVID-19 treatment.  

Wisconsin received its first allocation of oral antiviral COVID-19 treatments molnupiravir and Paxlovid to treat patients diagnosed with mild to moderate COVID-19. Both antiviral pills are intended for people who are at risk of developing severe COVID-19.

Wisconsin also recently received an allocation of Evusheld, a new monoclonal antibody treatment used for prevention of COVID-19. Evusheld is intended for use in people ages 12 and up with weakened immune systems or those unable to get a COVID-19 vaccine for medical reasons.

Supplies of these treatments and oral antivirals is currently very limited.

These new COVID-19 treatments and oral antivirals can reduce complications from COVID-19. It is critical that we all continue to take steps to stop the spread of COVID-19 to avoid needing treatment. To learn more, talk to your health care provider or visit the DHS COVID-19: Treatments and Medications page.

COVID-19 treatments and medications should not be used as replacements for prevention measures such as wearing a mask and vaccination. For the best protection against COVID-19 and circulating variants, get vaccinated and get your booster dose of COVID-19 vaccine.
