Hop on! Walgreens Stories visits the coast-to-coast COVID-19 vaccination bus at its stop in Detroit’s Eastern Market.
By Walgreens Stories
Two weeks after Walgreens hosted its first mobile vaccination clinic in Washington D.C., the coach bus, equipped with six vaccination stations, rolled in to its fourth city, Detroit. Once parked, Walgreens pharmacists were on hand to answer questions and administer shots to locals, no appointment needed. Vaccination cards (and cookies!) in hand, patients were pleased with the ease and convenience of having vaccines driven directly to their neighborhood.
In less than three months, the bus will stop in 20 cities across the country to bring walk-up vaccination opportunities to underserved communities. These stops have tipped the number of offsite clinics Walgreens has hosted to more than 1,000 in its efforts to make the vaccine accessible to all. Most recently, 4,000 Walgreens pharmacies announced the extension of their hours of operation each Friday in June to provide those who may have limited time the additional flexibility needed to get a COVID-19 vaccine.
