CVS has launched its COVID-19 vaccination program for long-term care facilities, whose residents have been disproportionality impacted by the pandemic.

CVS Pharmacy teams will administer the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine in facilities across 12 states this week, and the company expects to vaccinate up to four million residents and staff at over 40,000 long-term care facilities through the program.

Snip

CVS will administer COVID-19 vaccinations starting this week in: Connecticut, Florida, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Nevada, New Hampshire, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, and Vermont.

Vaccinations will begin in 36 more states, as well as the District of Columbia, on December 28.

1. CVS delivers a massive share of Flu vaccines and have done so for years.

The company has experience in this area.

2. Yes, but their policies are unbelieveably unethical

I've known pharmacy employees who have quit because of these issues.

I quit using Target for rxs when CVS gobbled them up for this very reason.
