COVID-19 Treatment for Brockton, MA, Residents & Visitors
If you think you may have COVID-19, you can turn to PhysicianOne Urgent Care for diagnosis and treatment. We’re a trusted immediate care provider that’s been serving this region since 2008, and the skilled practitioners at our Brockton, Massachusetts, location can prescribe Paxlovid—a type of COVID-19 antiviral medication—for qualifying patients.
How Does COVID-19 Antiviral Medication Work?
COVID-19 antiviral medication helps prevent the COVID-19 virus from replicating within a patient’s body. This is different from COVID-19 antibody therapy, which involves infusing lab-produced antibodies into a patient’s bloodstream using an IV in order to help their immune system fight off a COVID-19 infection.
Paxlovid, specifically, is an oral form of COVID-19 antiviral medication that’s often used to treat cases producing mild to moderate symptoms. These pills are taken at home over the course of five days, without the need for hospitalization. Patients typically tolerate Paxlovid very well and experience few side effects from the medication.
Don’t Wait to Get the Care You Need
If you’re concerned that you might have COVID-19, we encourage you to schedule a 24/7 telemedicine appointment with one of PhysicianOne Urgent Care’s experienced clinicians. After remotely prescreening you, we’ll be able to let you know whether you need to come in for in-person testing (we can perform polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests, antigen tests, and antibody tests at our Brockton urgent care center, located at 1340 Belmont Street). And if it turns out that you do have the virus, we’ll recommend the COVID-19 treatment regimen that’s best suited to your specific needs.
