Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc. is providing booster shots of Pfizer Inc.'s Covid-19 vaccine to eligible people nationwide, the pharmacy chain said Friday.
The company's booster-shot roll out follows a new Food and Drug Administration emergency-use authorization for additional shots of the vaccine, as well as new guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
People eligible for booster shots include those older than 65, people in long-term care facilities, people with underlying medical conditions and people who are at an increased risk of transmission and exposure from their jobs, Walgreens said.
Walgreens is also providing booster shots of the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines to moderately or severely immunocompromised people.
