San Ysidro Health is offering the following treatments for non-hospitalized patients and community members with COVID-19:
San Ysidro Health providers can order the drug Paxlovid to be given to patients for treatment of COVID-19 at our pharmacy locations.
Paxlovid is for patients ages 12 and older who have tested positive for COVID-19 and are at risk of developing severe COVID-19. Pills are taken over several days and must be started within 5 days of when your symptoms first began. San Ysidro Health pharmacies can also deliver Paxlovid directly to your home if you are not able to send someone to pick up your prescription.
If you are interested in this treatment, please call or text (619) 662-4100.
