Partnership with CVS and Walgreens Provides COVID Vaccines to Residents and Staff in Long-Term Care Facilities

California has opted in to the federal COVID-19 Pharmacy Partnership. At no cost to the state or local government, CVS and Walgreens will administer the Pfizer vaccine to residents and staff in long-term care facilities. Starting today, CVS and Walgreens will start with nursing homes, which will take an estimated 3-4 weeks, and then vaccinate staff and residents in assisted living, residential care and other long-term care facilities.

CVS will provide vaccinations for 499 skilled nursing facilities as part of the first phrase of the program, Newsom said. Walgreens will do the vaccinations for 357 facilities. Nationwide, CVS plans to immunize 40 million staff and residents on-site at long-term care facilities.

“We’ll visit each site three different times,” CVS Health Bay Area regional director Joe Fiesel explained to KCRA 3. “We’ll go there for the first dose, and then we’ll do a follow-up about three weeks later if we are using the Pfizer vaccine. And then we’ll go one last time to make sure we didn’t miss anybody in that facility.”
