Transparency Commission

In addition to vaccination, the most effective lever to avoid severe forms, drug treatments are now validated to provide a complementary solution to the most vulnerable people. 

Following the opinion of the ANSM, the HAS authorises early access to the Paxlovid treatment (nirmatrelvir/ritonavir) from the Pfizer laboratory for adults with COVID-19 not requiring oxygen therapy and at high risk of progression to a severe form of the disease.
