Cvs is Going to Stop a Covid-19 Vaccine in the Majority of Their Locations
CVS’s COVID-19 campaign has been a powerful success, with the company distributing more than 10 million doses of vaccine across 44 U.S. States in just five months. Now they’re going to make it even easier for people who can’t get them through their local CVS pharmacy or doctor by shipping out free vaccines directly from headquarters nationwide.
CVS has made significant progress since its launch in December as one of our country’s leading health care providers and retailers, working tirelessly to vaccinate those most at risk against this terrible virus: seniors living in long-term care facilities; nurses and doctors on medical missions abroad; children under two years old when they were first available back home here in America (where there are expected side effects);
CVS Health has announced that they will no longer carry Johnson and Johnson’s single-dose COVID-19 vaccine in most of its locations. Luckily, customers can still get the once sought after drug at almost 1,000 CVS MinuteClinic locations across 25 states and Washington, D.C., CNBC reported on Aug. 4th this year
CVS Pharmacy is getting rid of popular Johnsons & Johnsons’ Single-Dose COVID-19 Vaccine in many stores around America according to a recent report by CNBC who first published it last week August 4th 2018. The store which sells over 100 Million Prescriptions every year says their primary focus for now remains on providing immunizations with vaccines from Sanofi Pasteur and from GlaxoSmithKline.
A spokeswoman for CVS told CNBC that the decision to remove COVID-19 was based on a number of factors, including “supply chain capabilities,” logistics staffing and their overall ability to deliver those vaccines. Still, customers were so upset after hearing about this news as some of them started tweeting about posting bad reviews on the CVS Pharmacy website and contacting their company headquarters.
CVS has more locations than any other store in the world, so you might be surprised to learn that it is not possible for them to have a flu shot available at every location.
CVS stores are found literally everywhere, and many people like this convenience because they’re able to quickly get anything from aspirin or cough syrup all the way up through prescriptions without ever having to leave their neighborhood. This also means that CVS often competes with big box stores such as Target, Walmart, Costco and others by offering lower prices on everything from groceries (they sell fresh produce) over cosmetics; but even though there’s no shortage of offers when shopping here—there can still be shortages sometimes too!
In addition to their already great selection of medicines, CVS is now adding vaccines for the flu. With a variety of options and locations available across America, you can get your vaccination at any time without having to worry about whether or not there will be enough supply!
CVS has been on top with medicine in recent years, but they have just announced that next year when it comes around again; they’ll also be providing vaccinations against influenza which are necessary this upcoming season. The retailer’s spokesman Mike DeAngelis said “All CVS retail location will continue to offer either Moderna or Pfizer vaccine” as well as telling us that making this change had started “several weeks ago”.
The Johnson & Johnson vaccine is different from other vaccines on the market because it can provide protection against COVID-19 with just one dose.
The company has been struggling to keep up with demand, but they are committed to their customers’ safety and promise that production will continue as soon as possible.
The FDA and CDC recommend a 10-day pause on Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine due to rare, but serious blood clotting events post vaccination.
Researchers have warned that a disease epidemic is inevitable, but the public seems to be ambivalent about this reality. A scientist who has served on advisory panels for both FDA and CDC said, “I think the public hears that a vaccine can take off market for a period of time and just hard get past the scarlet letter.”
