CVS already offers flu, shingles and pneumonia vaccines. The two companies will follow state and federal guidelines for COVID-19 vaccine distribution.
The U.S. Department of Health and Senior Services tapped CVS and Walgreens late last year to help distribute the vaccine to priority Americans, such as seniors living in assisted living facilities and frontline health care workers.
The retail company first began distributing vaccines in early January.
