DEERFIELD -- Walgreens Friday said eligible individuals can now receive Pfizer COVID-19 booster vaccinations in stores nationwide, following Food and Drug Administration approval.

In addition, the drugstore chain said those individuals can also receive a flu vaccine during the same appointment.


Eligible individuals can receive their COVID booster shot at least six months after they completed their Pfizer COVID-19 primary vaccine series, under new FDA rules and updated guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

"Walgreens has played a vital role in responding to COVID-19 as millions have turned to us as a convenient vaccination destination and critical point of community care," said John Standley, president, Walgreens. "In addition to providing booster shots, our pharmacy teams remain readily available to advise patients, address questions and co-administer flu and COVID-19 primary vaccines to help protect our communities."
