Anybody 18 and older can now get a COVID-19 booster shot from Walgreens, the company said.
Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson will all be offered at Walgreens pharmacy locations around the country. To get a Pfizer or Moderna booster, you have to have gotten the second dose more than six months ago. For Johnson & Johnson, the time frame is two months later.
Individuals can schedule appointments by visiting Walgreens.com/ScheduleVaccine or by calling 1-800-WALGREENS.
“Expanding eligibility for booster doses provides yet another tool to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, especially at a time when many people are gathering for the holidays,” said Kevin Ban, chief medical officer for Walgreens. “As friends and family look to reconnect, Walgreens remains committed to offering convenient access to vaccinations that are critical to helping protect our communities – from COVID-19 primary vaccines and booster shots to flu immunizations.”
The CDC says that around 33.5 million people in the United States have received a booster dose of vaccine. That’s about 17.1% of the fully vaccinated population.
