COVID-19 vaccine appointments at retail pharmacies largely unavailable

Marylanders who are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine are still having difficulty booking an appointment online, including through the retail pharmacy pilot program. When 11 News looked at the online appointment availability at one of the retail pharmacies, there was nothing available at the Giant pharmacy and there was no waiting list. Residents have to just keep trying over and over. It was the same deal for Safeway pharmacy, of which, 11 locations joined the state's new network of retail pharmacies giving the vaccine this week. Five Rite-Aid locations were publicized as part of it, too.
