​​​​​Development of medicines and vaccines against covid-19

In the EU, several vaccines are currently approved. The global medicine authorities are all in close dialogue with researchers and pharmaceutical companies that want to develop medicines, including vaccines, for covid-19. This also applies to the European Medicines Agency (EMA), to which Norway is affiliated.

​Safe use of medicines

Talk to a doctor about correct use of medicines if you have contracted covid-19 or are afraid of contracting it. At the time of writing, there are no approved medicines for use to treat covid-19 outside a hospital setting. Any websites offering medicines for covid-19 are fraudulent.

  • Do not take any medicines to treat covid-19 without talking to a doctor first.
  • Do not use medicines for other conditions to treat covid-19 without talking to a doctor first. This applies to both prescription medicines and products that can be purchased over the counter.​ 

Only purchase medicines from Norwegian pharmacies or online pharmacies that have been approved by the healt authorities. For a list of approved online pharmacies in Norway, click here.
