CVS Opens First COVID Vaccine Clinics In Connecticut

CVS has opened its first vaccine clinics in Connecticut. The first two, in Putnam and Waterford are in areas that are currently underserved for vaccine access, according to the Rhode Island-based pharmacy chain. It says the goal eventually is to make the vaccine available in all 180 of its pharmacies in the state. Walgreens is also rolling out vaccine clinics at its locations, and both chains say they’re hiring in anticipation of high demand for the service. Currently the rollout is limited by the restricted number of vaccine doses being distributed by the federal government.
