Updated eligibility for oral COVID-19 treatments
More people with disability may now be eligible for potentially lifesaving COVID-19 antiviral treatments, including:
- immunocompromised people over the age of 18
- people with a broader range of chronic respiratory issues
- adults living with disability who have multiple medical conditions.
The changes have been made based on the latest evidence on the effectiveness and safety of these medicines.
COVID-19 can be life-threatening for adults in high-risk groups, even when they are fully vaccinated.
