The Victorian Department of Health has launched a pharmacy helpline to support PBS prescribers in the prescription of oral antivirals nirmatrelvir and ritonavir (Paxlovid) and molnupiravir (Lagevrio) to COVID-19 patients in the community.
The helpline is staffed by Alfred Health pharmacists experienced in prescribing COVID-19 early therapies. It is intended for use by Victorian PBS prescribers such as GPs and nurse practitioners.
The helpline is staffed 7 days a week from 8am to 5pm and can be contacted on (03) 8290 3801.
Please note: this helpline does not provide information for patients. Patients should call the National Coronavirus Helpline on 1800 020 080 or call 000 in a medical emergency.
