ATLANTA (CBS46) — CVS Health and Walgreens have announced that they will offer COVID-19 booster shots to all adults ages 18 years and older.
Starting Nov. 20, nearly 10,000 CVS Pharmacy locations across the country will be able to offer a Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 booster dose to all adults ages 18 years and older who have completed primary vaccination with any authorized COVID-19 vaccine.
Walgreens has also announced that the Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine booster will be available at nearly 9,000 locations.
This expanded eligibility comes as many families prepare to travel for the holidays and COVID-19 variants continue to emerge, putting people at greater risk to contract and spread COVID-19 and experience more severe symptoms.
All adults 18 and older who received their Pfizer or Moderna primary vaccine series at least six months ago or received a Johnson & Johnson dose at least two months ago are now recommended to receive a Pfizer, Moderna or J&J COVID-19 vaccine booster shot.
