CVS extended its COVID-19 vaccine eligibility to teachers, daycare and preschool workers in 17 states including Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Connecticut.
The news comes one day after President Joe Biden directed states to start prioritizing teachers in the vaccination process.
A CVS spokesman said, “We’re aligning with updated Federal Retail Pharmacy Program guidelines by making appointments available to pre-K through 12 educators and staff and childcare workers in all 17 states where we currently offer COVID-19 vaccines.”
