If You Live in These States, You Can Now Get Vaccinated at Walgreens

Walgreens locations in these 29 states are offering the vaccine to eligible people.

As vaccine eligibility expands to more groups of people, so does vaccine accessibility. This week, the COVID vaccine is becoming available at more and more pharmacies in an effort to get more shots in arms. Earlier this month, Walgreens announced they would be vaccinating eligible Americans at pharmacies in 21 states. Now, as of Feb. 25, they're adding eight more states to the list. To see if you can get the vaccine at your local Walgreens, read on, and for more vaccine guidance, know that The CDC Says Don't Do This Within 2 Weeks of Your COVID Vaccine.

In early February, Walgreens announced in a statement that they had been selected by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to administer the COVID vaccine in association with the Federal Retail Pharmacy Program. As the CDC explains, the program is a collaboration between the federal government, states, and 21 national pharmacy partners and independent pharmacy networks with the aim of making shots more accessible.

Walgreens will be administering vaccines in 29 states at select locations as of Feb. 25, when the company says it will start getting a weekly allocation of more than 480,000 doses. Walgreen's initial allotment was 180,000 doses per week.

While eligibility varies from state to state, the groups currently being vaccinated include healthcare workers, people over the age of 65, and people with underlying conditions. Since there is still limited availability of vaccines, Walgreens will not administer vaccinations on a walk-in basis at this time. If you're eligible, you can schedule your vaccination appointment through Walgreens' online scheduler.

"Walgreens was one of the first pharmacies to begin administering COVID-19 vaccinations in December to long-term care facility staff and residents," Walgreens president John Standley said in the statement. "We have rapidly accelerated vaccine administration in long-term care facilities over the last month, and will continue to expand access to vaccines in our pharmacies as supply becomes available."
