Over 90% of US population would be able to get Paxlovid at home
DEERFIELD, Ill. -- Walgreens has launched a free home delivery program for the COVID-19 oral antiviral therapy drug, Paxlovid.
The service, which launched Thursday, is in partnership with DoorDash and Uber Health, and available to those with a prescription, CNN reported.
It's in response to the White House's call for pharmacies to help make winter healthier for Americans.
It's available to more than 90% of the U.S. population, and comes as COVID-19 hospitalizations are on the rise nationwide.
In the coming weeks, Walgreens also plans to expand its home delivery service to include HIV treatment.
