End of the emergency procedure

Paxlovid is the name of the anti-Covid pill developed by the Pfizer group. The High Authority for Health (HAS) on Monday, April 25, published an opinion aimed at facilitating its prescription of Paxlovid. This pill is already refunded in France but under emergency arrangements.

To be effective, this pill must be taken ‘within five days following the appearance of symptoms”, specifies the HAS.
