Although we have entered a new phase of the COVID-19 pandemic where we have widespread access to testing and vaccinations available at your local pharmacy, cases are steadily rising in New York City — even amongst those vaccinated. The Pfizer antiviral, Paxlovid is the go-to prescription across all five boroughs and is available free of charge to all residents who present a positive test result and meet the prescription criteria.

Pharmacies That Carry Paxlovid in New York City  

As part of the new ‘Test to Treat’ Initiative, participating pharmacies will allow you to take a rapid antigen test onsite and receive a Paxlovid prescription within minutes of testing positive. Additionally, as of April 2022, Paxlovid prescriptions authorized by primary care physicians can be filled at all major pharmacies. New York City has a wide variety of pharmacy offerings, including CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid, and Duane Reade, that are partners in the new initiative; knowing which sites near you have paxlovid stock makes accessing care more convenient.  

The list below is a great reference for figuring out what pharmacies around the city have courses of paxlovid available. However, If you don’t see your area listed or want to check stock outside of New York City, the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response and the United States Department of Health and Human Services have created an interactive online database to search for your local pharmacies inventory of paxlovid and what facilities are apart of ‘test to treat.’

STOCK AS OF July 28, 2022
