REDDING, Calif. - CVS Health will be administering COVID-19 vaccines at dozens of CVS Pharmacy locations across California starting Friday, Feb. 12.
Those who are currently eligible to get the vaccine must make an appointment. No walk-ins will be accepted.
Four stores in the North State will take part in the first rollout. They include, Gridley, Red Bluff, Redding, and Mt. Shasta. The company said more locations will come online as more vaccine doses become available.
Those wanting to get vaccinated must also be able to verify that they fall in the groups currently approved for inoculation, which right now includes healthcare workers and people 65 and older, according to CVS's website. CVS has emphasized it will follow state eligibility criteria.
CVS Health already has a federal pharmacy partnership and began administering the vaccine to long-term care facilities across the state.
Patients must register in advance at CVS.com or through the CVS Pharmacy app, and people without online access can contact CVS customer service at 800-746-7287.
The CVS website was experiencing heavy traffic on Thursday morning, officials said. The site said it would keep refreshing, telling people, "we'll get you in soon."
