CVS will start offering COVID-19 vaccinations at a limited number of pharmacies across the state, including at least one of its two Princeton locations, beginning on Feb. 11, the company announced on Tuesday.
The total supply for the initial rollout in 11 states is sourced directly from the federal government through the pharmacy partnership program and will be about 250,000 total doses. About 19,900 of those doses will be distributed to pharmacies in New Jersey.
CVS Pharmacy locations that will begin to offer COVID-19 vaccinations on Feb. 11 will make appointments available for booking as early as Feb. 9 as stores receive shipments of the vaccine.
Participating CVS Pharmacies in New Jersey include stores in Princeton, Flemington, Edison, Brigantine, Elizabeth, Green Brook, Hoboken, North Bergen, North Plainfield, Seaside Heights, Stanhope, Union, Voorhees, and West Orange. For the initial program, 27 CVS pharmacies will be participating. The company has not provided a full list of the locations yet.
Vaccines will eventually be available at CVS Pharmacy locations throughout the country, subject to availability. According to CVS, the company has the capacity to administer 20 to 25 million shots per month.
Vaccines at participating CVS Pharmacy locations in New Jersey will be available to residents meeting state criteria. Patients must register at CVS.com or through the CVS Pharmacy app, and people without internet access can contact CVS customer service: (800) 746-7287. Walk-in vaccinations without an appointment will not be provided, according to the company.
