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.
