Pfizer’s new pill for COVID-19, called Paxlovid, is expected to arrive in Arizona this week. On December 22, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration granted an Emergency Use Authorization for Paxlovid. It is for outpatient treatment of mild to moderate COVID. It can be prescribed to those 12 and over who weigh at least 88 pounds. Paxlovid is the first oral antiviral that has received a federal emergency authorization.
