The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently updated the fact sheet for Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for Paxlovid (14 April 2022). They have also developed a Paxlovid patient eligibility screening checklist to aid in support for clinical decision making for prescribers as well as managing potential drug interactions. The national map below displays locations that have received shipments of U.S. Government-procured COVID-19 therapeutics under FDA EUA authority. The long-acting antibody combination, Evusheld; the monoclonal antibody treatment, bebtelovimab; as well as the oral antiviral therapies Lagevrio, Paxlovid, and Renal Paxlovid. The COVID-19 Treatment Guidelines is published by NIH in an electronic format that can be updated in step with the rapid pace and growing volume of information regarding the treatment of COVID-19. The panel is committed to updating this document to ensure that everyone has the most recent information regarding the management of COVID.

In response to the increasing COVID-19 spread across the United States, the American Society of Nephrology (ASN) COVID-19 Response Team has curated the following recommendations developed by nephrologists and nephrology team members. The rising cases of the COVID-19 Delta variant make vaccination a major priority in the kidney community. ASN and CDC ask you to print and post this resource in your facility to encourage staff and patients to be vaccinated. Note: The 3 poster pages have the same text; only the graphic at the top varies. The Spanish version is now available. NACCHO has created a tool to help you search for local health departments in your area. Find contact information for local health departments.
