COVID-19 treatments

The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) will rigorously assess any COVID-19 treatment for safety, quality and effectiveness before it can be registered for use in Australia. This page will be regularly updated to keep consumers, health professionals and sponsors informed of the latest regulatory developments.

Report a side effect

The TGA continues to monitor the safety of medicines after they are registered in Australia so that we can detect and respond to any safety concerns. If you think you may be experiencing a significant side effect (also known as an adverse event) to a COVID-19 treatment, you should seek advice from your doctor. Further information about adverse events can be found on the Reporting adverse events web page.

If you think you have experienced a side effect from a COVID-19 treatment you can report it via:

  • Telephone: 1300 134 237 (8am-8pm seven days a week) – the NPS MedicineWise Adverse Medicine Events line
  • Online form: TGA adverse event reporting
