Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre (TBRHSC), in association with local and regional partners, is providing patients with the ability to access COVID-19 therapies for the early treatment of COVID-19.
This program provides treatment for outpatients with COVID-19 who are at high-risk of progression to severe illness. While the first line of defence against COVID-19 is vaccination, these therapies may help reduce the risk of progressing from mild COVID-19 to severe infection that requires hospitalization for high-risk individuals.
The COVID-19 Therapy Clinic is located in the COVID-19 Assessment Centre, 984 Oliver Road, on the TBRHSC campus.
Am I eligible for COVID-19 therapy?
