Walgreens To Offer Appointments For Pfizer COVID Vaccine Boosters Starting Saturday

Walgreens has announced it’s offering eligible people COVID-19 vaccine booster shots. The Pfizer boosters are now available in stores nationwide, following FDA Emergency Use Authorization and new guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for those age 65 and older as well as those at high risk. Starting Saturday, appointments for a COVID-19 booster shot and additional vaccinations can be scheduled through Walgreens.com/ScheduleVaccine or by calling Walgreens. New patients to Walgreens seeking a booster shot will be asked to verify eligibility when the appointment is scheduled and at the time of the appointment. Patients can either bring their COVID-19 vaccine dose card to the appointment so the booster shot can be recorded, or information about their primary vaccine series to receive a new vaccine card noting the booster dose. Eligible patients can receive their booster shot at least six months after they completed their Pfizer COVID-19 primary vaccine series following the FDA decision this week.
