Rite Aid was reminding Southern California residents that the drug store chain began offering COVID-19 vaccines, and stores had appointments available as early as Wednesday.
CVS and Walgreens had also started doling out vaccines Feb. 12 as part of a federal program.
The coronavirus vaccine program at Rite Aid was offering appointments to those who are eligible, including those 65 and older, health-care workers, and long-term care residents and staff. See the eligibility guide here.
The doses would be given by a certified immunizing pharmacist.
Follow-up appointments for a second dose would automatically be scheduled, the chain said.
Here’s where those who are eligible can schedule an appointment.
The chain also offers free COVID-19 testing to anyone 4 and older. Find more information here.
