Through its partnership with CVS Pharmacy, Target Corp. About a third of the stores are designated as COVID-19 vaccine destinations.
Target said on Wednesday that more than 600 of the more than 1,700 CVS pharmacy stores have started supplying coronavirus vaccines in 17 states. Eligible customers and employees can schedule appointments on CVS.com based on the availability of free COVID-19 vaccines at target location CVS pharmacies. Those who receive the injection can set their first and second doses (the Pfizer / BioNTech and Moderna vaccines require two vaccines).
Target said the launch of the COVID-19 vaccine is “the first major vaccine to deliver CFS to targeted customers.”
“As the COVID-19 vaccine continues to gain in popularity, Target will continue to partner with more than 600 CVS locations in Target stores throughout the pandemic to deliver vaccines to eligible guests and team members to support our team and community.” The vaccines provided by CFS are against the flu, shingles, and pneumonia, and we will continue to work closely together to administer [coronavirus] vaccines according to state and federal guidelines. We also provide support for selected stores. CVS offers convenient rooms to make appointments.

Target added that it will continue to work with CVS to provide vaccines to buyers and partners. The Minneapolis supermarket chain said it will also support public vaccination programs such as the recently launched Health Action Alliance and the Advertising Committee’s new campaign targeting “particularly affected exposure during a pandemic. People of color.”
To encourage employees to get vaccinated against COVID-19, Target offers incentives. The company said in February that front-line workers who receive the coronavirus vaccine would be paid for up to four hours (two hours per dose) and travel to and from a Lyft vaccination appointment for free, up to a maximum each. You can pay $ 15 for a trip. Delivery company Target’s Shipt has also launched a “vaccine push program” that allows individual customers to apply for a grant of up to $ 50 to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
In October, Shipt, headquartered in Birmingham, Alabama, began providing free flu vaccines to all active individual customers through the CVS Pharmacy website. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is recommending Americans get the flu vaccine to avoid the increased risk of the coronavirus and reduce the burden on the already overburdened hospital staff.
In total, Target operates 1,897 stores in all 50 states. Based in Woonsocket, Rhode Island, CVS Health acquired the pharmacy and clinic business in Target Store in 2015 and renamed it the CVS Pharmacy website.
