CVS delays start of COVID-19 vaccinations

UPDATE:  CVS Health has pushed back the start of its COVID-19 vaccination rollout at pharmacies in Texas and several other states.

The vaccinations at CVS were  supposed to start Thursday, Feb. 11, but a delay in shipment of  vaccines from the federal government has pushed that back to Friday, Feb. 12.   You won’t be able to schedule an appointment until Thursday.

Because active stores will change regularly based on vaccine supply, CVS Health is not providing a full list of participating locations.   The list of specific stores will be available at as stores receive supplies and appointments become available.   CVS asks that you not call the stores to check on availability, but the information will be available on the CVS website. 

Those without access to the website can call customer service at  1-800-746-7287.
