Two weeks ago the White House announced that the Federal Retail Pharmacy Program for COVID-19 Vaccination is expanding from 17,000 participating pharmacies to nearly 40,000 stores by tomorrow. This achievement will make it so a vaccine site will be within five miles of 90% of all Americans. The participating pharmacies in the Federal Retail Pharmacy Program are in communities across the country – including 45% in the highest-need neighborhoods.

This is a very important program because these pharmacies get shipments directly from the federal government and don’t rely on meager allocations from the ADHS, who has been prioritizing allocations toward the state financed and university run mega-sites.

I just checked on and found numerous convenient appointment that are available at several pharmacies near my house.
