Walgreens to open mobile vaccine clinics
DEERFIELD -- Following the success of more than 700 vaccination clinics across the country hosted primarily at churches and community centers, Walgreens said it will activate multiple mobile clinics in Chicago.
The traveling mobile clinics will focus on bringing COVID-19 vaccines directly to underserved communities and those with barriers to accessing the vaccine. Over the next two months, additional mobile clinics will make stops in a number of locations across the country, the company said.
"We understand the important role Walgreens has and will continue to play in removing access barriers to the COVID-19 vaccine," said John Standley, president, Walgreens. "Mobile clinics and the other models we use will allow us to bring vaccines to the heart of the most impacted communities, as well as addressing common barriers like transportation and convenience for those who want to get vaccinated."
Deerfield-based Walgreens has administered more than 15 million COVID-19 vaccines to date. Individuals can continue scheduling appointments based on availability in their area, through Walgreens.com/ScheduleVaccine or calling 1-(800)-Walgreens.
