COVID Help please re obtaining antivirals in Santiago

Prepare for your next Camino on Santa Catalina Island, March 17-20
Sorry to hear this...

I would:

1) Get a mask at any pharmacy
2) Walk down to HM Hostptales (the emergency room there)

The emergency entrance are down the side on the right hand side when you get there. They will help you. It is a private hospital, so you might need to pay a little for the visit... ask when you check in how much it will be.

Get well soon!

Thank you Ivar, we have masks & will head to HM Hospitales shortly.
 
The focus is on reducing the risk of failure through being well prepared. 2nd ed.
Hi Sheila, ask at your accommodation where your nearest "centro de salud" is.

These are local health centres and very good. Search using "centro de salud santiago de compostela"

Have your European Health card or Travel insurance to hand. Use Google Translate if necessary. Some staff will have excellent English.

The local pharmacy will advise and sell suitable face masks.

Take care...

Hi all, arrived in Santiago today, after walking the Portuguese Coastal. Tested +ive for Covid this afternoon. Can anyone advise on how I can get 1. Doctor's appointment & 2. Antivirals ASAP, please. Feeling pretty unwell.
Hi Sheila...Congratulations on finishing your Camino. Sending you some Healing Light from Perth. Hoping you are able to access the Anti viral and hope you recover as soon as possible. A real "bummer" that Covid has intruded. 🌻🍀
