CVS Pharmacies in Burien, Lakewood, and Seattle are now offering the COVID-19 vaccine.

“We’re increasing the number of active stores and expanding to additional states as fast as supply allows, with the capacity to administer 20 25 million shots per month,” said Karen S. Lynch, President and Chief Executive Officer, CVS Health, in a press release. “We’re also focused on priority populations, including vulnerable communities disproportionately impacted by the pandemic as well as teachers and school support staff.”

The pharmacy is following state guidelines regarding who is eligible to be vaccinated.

Those eligible in Washington include those aged 65+, teachers and staff, those aged 16+ who are pregnant or have a disability that puts them at high-risk for severe illness from COVID-19, people age 50+ in multigenerational housing, long-term care residents and staff, healthcare workers, first responders, grocery, food and agriculture workers, corrections officers/staff, judiciary workers, and public transit workers.

Those interested in scheduling their first and second doses can do so on the CVS webpage.
