Rite Aid says guardians of children under 18 can now schedule appointments for the Pfizer vaccine using the Rite Aid scheduling tool found at www.RiteAid.com/covid-19.
Rite Aid also created a clinic inquiry tool to allow schools and organizations in its footprint to inquire about organizing on-site clinics conducted by the company’s pharmacy team.
“The online clinic inquiry tool provides an efficient way to help bring the vaccine directly into communities and reach people at schools, community centers, churches, and workplaces,” Rite Aid said in a news release.
