COVID-19 vaccines set to ship to retail pharmacies across the country

While neighborhood pharmacies will make the COVID-19 vaccine seem much more within reach for millions of people anxiously waiting, experts warn there may be some frustration. “Navigate it with patience,” Keri Hurley-Kim, PharmD, an assistant clinical professor at the University of California Irvine School of Pharmacy & Pharmaceutical Sciences, tells Verywell. “People should understand that pharmacies will be held to vaccinating the same groups as outlined in state and county tiers. Do not expect to be able to skip the line.”
