CVS Health is adding to the roster of CVS Pharmacy locations offering no-cost COVID-19 vaccinations. The company will be offering vaccines at certain CVS Pharmacy stores in Delaware, New Mexico and West Virginia beginning March 31.
The two locations in Delaware offering COVID-19 vaccines add to several stores already administering vaccines, while the five in New Mexico and two in West Virginia mark the first in the two states.
