Nursing Services

MA launched a new free telehealth program to help residents more easily access COVID-19 treatment.

  • The COVID-19 telehealth program is a quick, easy and free way for individuals to see if Paxlovid is an appropriate treatment for them. Paxlovid is a COVID-19 treatment pill taken orally that can reduce the risk for severe symptoms and hospitalization by nearly 90 percent.
  • This program is available to all COVID-19 positive individuals 18 years or older who are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms and currently live in Massachusetts. 
  • The telehealth visit consists of a short health intake survey and, if eligible, a video consultation with a health care clinician. During the telehealth visit, similar to an in-person visit with a medical provider, the clinician will review symptoms and risk factors, and determine if Paxlovid treatment is appropriate.
  • If an individual is eligible for the treatment, the clinician will send a prescription to a pharmacy conveniently located for the individual or, if necessary, arrange for free overnight delivery of Paxlovid to an individual’s home.

This program can be accessed at mass.gov/COVIDtelehealth and is available in English, Spanish, Haitian Creole and Portuguese

monkey Pox

A Massachusetts resident has tested positive for Monkey Pox. There are NO cases of Monkey Pox in Framingham. Monkeypox is a zoonotic disease caused by the monkeypox virus which also includes variola virus (smallpox), and cowpox. The disease is called monkeypox because the agent was first discovered in laboratory monkeys in 1958, but the natural hosts of the virus are rodents. “Scientists at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are collaborating with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health to investigate a situation in which a U.S. resident tested positive for monkeypox on May 18 after returning to the U.S. from Canada.”
