CVS opens more vaccine appointments at 40 statewide locations

Starting Thursday, February 25, CVS Health will begin offering COVID-19 vaccines to eligible populations at 40 more select CVS Pharmacies in California – approximately 20 of which will be in the Greater Los Angeles area. 

Approximately 49,140 doses of the Pfizer vaccine are being made available for the 40 additional California sites through the Federal Retail Pharmacy Program, bringing the total CVS Pharmacy COVID-19 vaccination locations to more than 160 statewide. 

Appointments for this allocation will start to become available for booking today, with shots beginning February 25. 

Vaccines in a retail setting are offered on an appointment-only basis via or through the CVS Pharmacy app, and those without online access can contact Customer Service: (800) 746-7287. 

A spokesperson for CVS Health sent us this statement about checking ID's

"As part of the scheduling process on, patients are asked to attest that all information provided during appointment set-up is truthful and accurate. Some states will also require the collection of IDs to verify eligibility and we are complying with that requirement. Our immunizers may ask for proof of age if they have reason to believe a patient is not being truthful. If a patient does not have insurance, in order to submit the claim to the HRSA program for the uninsured, we are required to attest that we have asked for the patient’s Social Security Number, driver’s license number, or state identification number at the time of scheduling."

As more supply becomes available through the federal program, the company will expand to additional states while increasing the number of stores offering vaccinations. CVS has the capacity to administer 20-25 million shots per month.
