As the city of Los Angeles closes several of its vaccination sites due to a shortage of doses, CVS says it has more than 80,000 vaccines ready for administration.
The channel will start making appointments on Thursday.
The vaccination site at Dodger Stadium and other sites in the city will be closed Friday and Saturday due to a COVID-19 vaccine shortage in LA County.
CVS and other pharmacies obtain their vaccines through a program of the federal government. The first phase of the Federal Retail Pharmacy Program begins this week when vaccines were shipped directly to some pharmacies in addition to state allowances.
The program will begin with approximately 1 million doses per week that will go to 6,500 retail pharmacies. The figures will eventually rise to 40,000 pharmacies.
The program includes 21 national partner pharmacies and independent pharmacy networks. Partners include Walgreens, CVS Pharmacy, Walmart, Kroger, Rite Aid, Costco and more. See a full list here.
CVS sites in California participate in COVID-19 vaccine deployment by appointment only. This list is subject to change depending on availability.
