Excellent news! CVS pharmacies are now accepting walk-ins for COVID-19 vaccines nationwide (including Huntington and 516 other locations in New York) with no appointment necessary, the company announced Wednesday.
According to a spokesperson with CVS Health, the new policy will include same-day requests and appointments as soon as one hour from the time of scheduling (pending vaccine availability).
As of May 5, CVS Health is now administering vaccinations in more than 8,300 stores across 49 states, Puerto Rico and Washington, D.C., and has surpassed 17 million COVID-19 vaccine doses administered through its participation in the Pharmacy Partnership for Long-Term Care Program and Federal Retail Pharmacy Program. They also noted, in the release, that "second dose compliance is more than 90 percent at CVS Health locations".
"We continue to orchestrate an all-out effort to vaccinate the nation against COVID-19," stated CVS Health President and CEO Karen S. Lynch in the news release. "Thanks to the dedication and effort of our colleagues, I am proud to say we helped achieve the President's accelerated 100-day goal of 200 million vaccines and have administered over 17 million COVID-19 vaccine doses to date. Our customers continue to give us high satisfaction scores based on their interactions with colleagues and our customer-centric digital approach for scheduling appointments."
