The medication prevents the coronavirus from reproducing in the body. On the HUS website(external link) (in Finnish) you can find information on the patient groups to which this medication is available and instructions on how to get the medication.

At the moment, Paxlovid is only prescribed at specialised medical care units. The medication is not available at Espoo’s health centres.
