Feds strike deal to make COVID-19 vaccine free at major pharmacies:
COVID-19 vaccinations will eventually be available free at neighborhood pharmacy chains — just as flu shots are now — thanks to an agreement announced by federal health officials on Thursday.
The feds’ latest distribution partnership with major chain drug stores, grocery-store pharmacies and other networks covers about three out of every five pharmacies in all 50 states and U.S. territories such as Puerto Rico.
Covered pharmacies now include retail chains Rite Aid and Walgreens and pharmacies at Albertsons, Publix, Costco and Walmart.
CVS and Walgreens have previously agreed to administer vaccines to nursing home patients. --->READ MORE HERE

“I doubt we’re going to eradicate this,” he said. “I think we need to plan that this is something we may need to maintain control over chronically. It may be something that becomes endemic that we have to just be careful about.” --->READ MORE HERE
