“We provide updates daily to the CDC.
“Details I can share with you:
“Please see the following press release on the status of our long-term care facility program.
“You can find the latest data here: https://covid.cdc.gov/covid-data-tracker/#vaccinations. We report this to the CDC and the Tiberius system (tracking LTCF data) on a daily basis.
“COVID-19 vaccines will be available in all of Walgreens more than 9,000 store locations, once they become available for mass administration. We are following guidance from the CDC and federal and state governments on mass availability. We will continuously expand access as more vaccines are approved and inventory grows, and are looking to the spring for mass availability. We will provide online scheduling options through the Walgreens app, similar to how we schedule flu and other routine vaccinations. Patients will be able to schedule both vaccination appointments at the same time. Our pharmacists will also recommend scheduling a second dose appointment at the point of vaccination.
“Phase 1B. As part of the federal government’s vaccine distribution plans, states are responsible for prioritizing populations for initial COVID-19 vaccine administration. Walgreens is working closely with state governments to expand access to COVID vaccines as states advance their distribution and administration plans for additional vulnerable populations in Phase 1B.
“As part of Phase 1B, COVID-19 vaccines will be administered at select Walgreens stores in limited quantities according to state distribution plans. Individuals eligible to receive the vaccine according to state guidelines will be able to make an appointment. During Phase 1, Walgreens will not be providing vaccinations on a walk-in basis.”
