Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) is a contagious virus that commonly impacts children. In fact, nearly all children will get their first RSV infection by age 2. However, severe RSV disease is the number one reason babies under 12 months old have to be admitted to hospitals in the US. Common symptoms of RSV are similar to other respiratory infections but also include a high fever and difficulty breathing.
Avella’s pharmacy staff is focused on providing support to parents of children affected by RSV as well as access to highly-effective medications used to treat this virus. Our demonstrated expertise in this area has led to Avella being chosen by Navitus Health Solutions LLC to provide Synagis®, an innovative therapy used to help protect children from developing the severe form of RSV, to its managed Medicaid members in Texas.
We know it can be extremely difficult to deal with the illness of your child. That’s why Avella’s staff members are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to answer your questions, provide guidance and offer compassionate support.
