CVS Pharmacy locations in California and across the United States are now accepting walk-in appointments for the COVID-19 vaccine.
CVS Health said Wednesday that no appointments will be required to get the vaccine at 1,115 locations in California, though people can still sign up for same-day scheduling at CVS.com. In some cases, appointments may be found within an hour of trying to schedule one.
People in California who are ages 16 or older are eligible for the vaccine.
“We continue to orchestrate an all-out effort to vaccinate the nation against COVID-19,” CVS Health President and CEO Karen S. Lynch said in a release.
CVS Health said it has administered more than 17 million COVID-19 vaccine doses so far at more than 8,300 stores in the U.S., Puerto Rico and Washington, D.C.
The announcements come after Rite Aid announced last week that it was making COVID-19 vaccines available at all of the chain’s locations and would also welcome walk-in appointments.
Where else can I get the COVID-19? Where can I make COVID vaccine appointments near me?
Californians can also schedule COVID-19 appointments by using the state’s My Turn system.
The state also recommends the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Vaccine Finder tool.
