In an effort to increase access to the COVID-19 vaccine in the nation’s states and territories, the federal government is partnering with national pharmacy partners and independent pharmacy networks. The program is known as the Federal Retail Pharmacy Program. For additional information about the program from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, click here.
In an announcement Tuesday, March 3, President Joe Biden advised states to prioritize vaccinations for educators by the end of the month.
“Throughout March, they will be able to prioritize the vaccination of pre-K-through-12 educators and staff and childcare workers. Throughout March, they will be able to sign up for an appointment at a pharmacy near them,” President Biden said Tuesday. “And I want to be very clear: Not every educator will be able to get their appointment in the first week, but our … goal is to do everything we can to help every educator receive a shot this month, the month of March.”
