N.Y.C. Will Deliver Free Antiviral Covid Pills to Eligible Residents

Mayor Eric Adams of New York City said that oral antiviral pills would be made available for free, same-day at-home delivery to New Yorkers who test positive for the virus and are at higher risk for severe illness.

“The city will also offer at-home delivery of Covid antiviral pills to eligible New Yorkers who need them, and we’re going to do it with the magic New York word: We’re going to do it for free. For free. Delivering the antiviral pills to you at home if you’re an eligible New Yorker, and it’s for free. We want to make sure that no one with Covid has to move throughout the city, especially for those who have immune compromise or our elderly. We want to bring it to you, and we want you to take advantage of this. This is a great deal and a great program we put together.” “If you are prescribed either of the oral antiviral pills, we will deliver them to your home via a partnership between the health department and Alto Pharmacy. This is usually a same-day delivery so that you can begin your treatment as soon as possible.”
