CVS has posted a press release about Gov. Ron DeSantis announcement yesterday that 81 select CVS Pharmacy, CVS Pharmacy y más, and Navarro Discount Pharmacy locations across Florida will offer the COVID vaccination.
Inweekly has requested the Escambia County location from CVS media contact Tara Burke and will post the information as an update to this pos when we receive the information.
Vaccines at participating CVS Pharmacy, CVS Pharmacy y más, and Navarro Discount Pharmacy locations in Florida will be available to individuals meeting state criteria, which is currently 65 and older in Florida.
Patients must register in advance at CVS.com or through the CVS Pharmacy app, and people without online access can contact CVS customer service: (800) 746-7287. Walk-in vaccinations without an appointment will not be provided.
Supply for the limited rollout in the state, which is sourced directly from the Federal Retail Pharmacy Program, will be approximately 62,000 total weekly doses. Participating CVS Pharmacy, CVS Pharmacy y más, and Navarro Discount Pharmacy locations are in the following Florida counties: Broward, Collier, Escambia, Flagler, Hendry, Gadsden, Hillsborough, Manatee, Miami-Dade, Palm Beach, Polk, St. Lucie, and Volusia. As more supply becomes available, the company will expand vaccine access through an increasing number of store locations in more Florida counties.
“One of our greatest strengths as a company is our presence in communities across the country, which makes us an ideal partner for administering vaccines in a safe, convenient, and inclusive manner,” said Ahmed Velez, Region Director, CVS Health. “We look forward to continuing to work with the state to defeat the virus and deliver on our shared commitment to increase access to the vaccine for underserved communities, in particular Florida’s Black and Hispanic populations.”
