The Maryland Department of Heath will offer the newly-approved oral COVID-19 medications.  The department made the announcement late last week.  It will team up with care facilities, health clinics, physicians and pharmacies throughout the state to distribute the prescription pills.  Paxlovid and Molnupiravir are the first oral antiviral treatments authorized by the FDA to treat COVID-19.
