The NHS has just started to make antibody and anti-viral treatments for Covid-19 available, prioritising people who are clinically extremely vulnerable, including people with Down's Syndrome aged 12+.

The NHS is now writing to people with Down's Syndrome about accessing these treatments if they test positive for Covid, and sending them a home PCR test to keep for when they may have symptoms and need to carry out a test. More information is available on the Down's Syndrome Association website

Treatment is also likely to be available to a wider group of people with a learning disability if they take part in a new trial called Panoramic, which is being led by Oxford University. Details of how to join the trial and who is eligible are available online atĀ
