Work With Activities To Support COVID-19 Vaccines Education And Equity
We have initiated a strategy to educate people about the COVID-19 vaccine. Its purpose is to address any disparities in COVID-19 vaccination access. In addition, equity in vulnerable communities, with a particular emphasis on Black and Hispanic populations.
We are reaching out to patients and increasing COVID-19 immunization rates throughout our businesses. As well as with our network of community leaders and nonprofit groups. Also, we prioritize CVS pharmacies in vulnerable neighborhoods as we begin to offer immunizations in specific states and locales.
We will increase vaccine access by expanding to new states and locations by deploying mobile vaccination vans and performing community. It is based immunization clinics in collaboration with philanthropic groups.
We believe that by educating the communities we serve about vaccines and increasing equitable access to vaccines across the country, we can make a significant contribution to public health.
Covid-19 Vaccines Provided At Selected CVS Pharmacies
Vaccines are currently available in select CVS Pharmacy locations only for priority populations determine by state and federal governments. We expect to vaccinate in CVS Pharmacy locations nationwide. The administration of up to 20-25 million shots per month becomes possible once vaccines are make available to the general public. We are basing our decisions on the assumption that there is enough supply available.
Customers who meet the requirements can now schedule their vaccinations – both the initial shot and the required second dose – at cvs.com or through the CVS app.
We had administered more than 3 million vaccine doses to patients and staff in over 40,000—also long-term care facilities across the country as of February 16. We finished the first doses of vaccine administration in all Skilled Nursing Facilities. I will complete the second dose by the end of the month, as planned. We are expecting to spend both amounts of vaccine administration for Assisted Living Facilities by mid-March. It will allow us to fulfill our commitment to provide vaccines in long-term care facilities.
