CVS, Navarro join other Florida pharmacies offering walk-in COVID vaccinations

·1 min read

All CVS, CVS y mas and Navarro Discount Pharmacies in Florida are now offering walk-in COVID-19 vaccinations. The change comes a day after President Joe Biden issued a federal mandate requiring pharmacies in the federal retail pharmacy program to offer walk-in vaccinations.

CVS Health, which owns all three stores, made the announcement in a news release Wednesday, May 5. Same-day appointments will also be available online at CVS.com. There are 782 stores in Florida.

Same-day vaccination appointments also began Wednesday at all Walgreens stores in Florida. Some Walgreen stores last week began accepting walk-ins, including in Miami-Dade and Broward counties.

Publix, which is also part of the federal pharmacy program, has not announced whether it plans to offer walk-in vaccinations in Florida. Publix stores in Alabama, North Carolina, and Tennessee began accepting walk-ins Monday.

Publix did not immediately respond to the Miami Herald’s inquiry.

Do Walmart and Winn-Dixie require COVID vaccine appointments?

Walmart and Sam’s Club on Tuesday announced that all of its stores in Florida were offering walk-up vaccinations.

Winn-Dixie, Fresco y Mas and Harveys began offering walk-up vaccinations last week.

All of these companies are part of the federal retail pharmacy program and are still giving people the option to schedule appointments online.

These South Florida vaccine sites don’t take appointments or demand residency proof
