CINCINNATI, September 24, 2021 – Beginning today, eligible individuals can now receive Pfizer COVID-19 booster vaccinations at Cincinnati-area Walgreens store locations, following Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Emergency Use Authorization and new guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Here are the most important things your audience needs to know about getting vaccinated at Walgreens…
- Same-day appointments will be available on a walk-in basis at select Walgreens stores. The COVID-19 boosters will be free and provided to patients six months after they receive their second dose of the Pfizer vaccine.
- Patients are encouraged to get their initial COVID-19 vaccination series or booster along with their flu shot during the same visit, saving time and providing protection against both viruses.
- Individuals can schedule their COVID-19 booster shot and additional immunizations by visiting Walgreens.com/ScheduleVaccine, calling 1-800-Walgreens or calling their local Walgreens.
Patients can either bring their COVID-19 vaccine dose card to the appointment so the booster shot can be recorded, or information about their primary vaccine series to receive a new vaccine card noting the booster dose. While walk-ins are accepted as available, Walgreens recommends scheduling your appointment at a time that is convenient for you.
In addition, please find b-roll of a patient receiving their COVID-19 booster at a Walgreens pharmacy here.
