Sumary of Biden calls on nearly 40K pharmacies to start giving COVID vaccines without appointments:
- Go get the shot as soon as you can.’ He also called on state-run clinics to offer walk-in vaccinations, though many states, such as New York, have already done so..
- CVS and Walgreens both offer same-day appointments and Rite Aid began accepting walk-in vaccinations ‘on a limited basis’ last week..
- Some of this is due to slowing demand with the average number of people getting a first or single dose falling 50 percent from the peak on April 13..
- ‘Soon, we’ll have reached the adults who are most eager to get vaccinated, and at that point, this effort will shift to a new phase.’ Biden also requested that state-run clinics offer walk-in vaccinations for Americans..
- Biden also set a goal for 160 million Americans to be fully vaccinated by July 4 and for 70 percent of adults to have one shot in the arm in an effort to return the country to normal life…
