Keeping Safe When Buying Medicines Online

Published: 25 Mar 2020

The European Medicines Agency (EMA) is urging the general public not to buy medicines from unauthorised websites and other vendors aiming to exploit fears and concerns during the ongoing pandemic of coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

Vendors may claim that their products can treat or prevent COVID-19 or may appear to provide easy access to legitimate medicines that are otherwise not readily available. Such products are likely to be falsified medicines.

All registered online pharmacies have a common logo which you can use to confirm that the site is registered.
