COVID-19 Vaccines Will Be Shipped Directly to Some Pharmacies
The Biden administration has announced it will begin shipping about 1 million COVID-19 vaccine doses per week directly to thousands of pharmacies around the U.S.https://t.co/qQ8VgudnbD— NPR (@NPR) February 3, 2021
Health Editor’s Note: For those of you who have not been contacted for an appointment to receive your COVID-19 vaccine, as of next week (Feb. 11) there will be one million vaccine doses sent to thousands of pharmacies in an attempt to ramp up inoculations. These vaccines will be in addition to the shipments already coming to states. The number of pharmacies receiving and giving the vaccine will move from the initial 6,500 stores to 40,000 retail pharmacies including Rite Aid, Walgreens, and CVS. These vaccine doses will come directly from the federal government.
Continue to practice safety measures, masks worn properly (I now wear two masks), physically distance, wash hands all the time and never touch your face, eyes, nose, or mouth without first washing your hands, stay home if you are sick, stay away from groups of any size, and stay away from anyone who is ill. I see no reason to jettison these safety measures even after you have reached the 2 to 3 week mark after your second vaccination. These safety measures will help you to avoid flu and regular colds. Also, unless you are wearing your vaccine card on a string around your neck, like a identity badge, how will others know you are not a potential COVID-19 spreader?……Carol
