CVS COVID Vaccine Appointment Eligibility and How to Book Online



CVS Health, the company that owns the CVS Pharmacy chain, is offering COVID vaccinations at select CVS locations in 11 states. Those eligible can register by booking an appointment at the CVS website.

The website states: “We are administering the COVID-19 vaccine by appointment only in select stores, based on local eligibility guidelines.”

In a statement on February 2, CVS Health said: “Supply for the initial rollout, which is sourced directly from the federal government through the pharmacy partnership program, will be approximately 250,000 total doses. As more supply becomes available, the company will expand to additional states while increasing the number of stores offering vaccinations.

“More than 90,000 health care professionals including pharmacists, licensed pharmacy technicians and nurses will participate in the vaccination effort, giving CVS Pharmacy the capacity to administer 20–25 million shots per month.”

The company said in early February: “CVS Health is also working directly with Indiana (utilizing two CVS Pharmacy locations) and Ohio (19) to provide in-store vaccinations to eligible populations using state allocations. Other states may choose the same option, which is separate from the federal pharmacy partnership program but can run concurrently.”
