The company is preparing for a high demand for the vaccine amid the coronavirus pandemic, and are working to ensure it has additional stock of it. The CDC is urging people six months and older to get a vaccination ahead of the flu season.
No prescription is needed for anyone age 12 or older to receive the shot at the pharmacies, but one is needed for those ages 7 to 11.
Customers are required to wear a face covering. Pharmacists will have masks, gloves and face shields. The company says its immunization area will have strict disinfecting and sanitization measures in place between each patient.
