CVS Health responds to latest update on COVID-19 vaccinations and testing

Thursday, September 9, 2021

Vaccinating more Americans is clearly the most effective way to prevail over the pandemic. We’ve administered more than 30 million vaccines, with a particular focus on those more susceptible to COVID-19, and are prepared to play a leading role in providing booster shots.

We’ve been ahead of the curve when it comes to vaccinations for our employees, announcing a requirement in August that impacts many of our 300,000 colleagues. We’ll review new requirements proposed by the administration and act accordingly.

COVID-19 testing continues to be a critical focus for us as well, with more than 30 million tests administered to date. We currently offer free testing at nearly 5,000 locations across the country, and recently expanded to more high-risk, underserved communities.  We also offer four home testing products as a convenient alternative.
