How to get COVID-19 vaccine from Walgreens

COVID-19

Instead of their previous plan to combine forces, Walgreens agreed to buy 2,186 Rite Aid stores for $5.2 billion. That will essentially cut Rite Aid in half, leaving it with 2,350 stores after the deal is done.

HOUSTON (CW39) You may have seen signs on Walgreens doors indicating that they don’t have the vaccine available… yet. But get ready, because it could be soon.

However, you won’t just be able to walk in and get your jab. There will be a process in place in order for you to get your COVID-19 vaccine injection.

Walgreens, with 111 pharmacies in Houston, is offering in-store coronavirus vaccinations at some locations, but you have to set up an account online and be pre-screened.

In a press conference on Monday January 11, 2021, Gov. Greg Abbott said only a fraction of vaccines set aside for long-term care facilities have actually been used.

“There are 412,188 of those doses for long-term care and nursing home residents that either have not yet been reported or are waiting to be given,” he said.

In a statement posted on their website, Walgreens said:

The COVID-19 vaccine is on the way.

 As pharmacy experts, this is what we train for. We’re ready to deliver vaccinations safely in accordance with state-specific eligibility requirements.
