Illinois to Receive Antiviral COVID-19 Treatments

Two COVID-19 antiviral treatments will be coming to Illinois in the coming weeks.

The Illinois Department of Public Health announced the Pfizer and Merck treatments are for those with mild-to-moderate COVID-19 and who are at high risk of severe illness.

Both medications will be available by prescription only. The state is coordinating with pharmacies to distribute the drug around the state.
