DEERFIELD, Ill. — With the rise of highly transmissible COVID-19 variants like Omicron, Walgreens is committed to ensuring updated vaccines are accessible to the public as eligibility expands to help provide better protection and reduce community spread. Following guidance from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Walgreens is now offering the updated COVID-19 bivalent vaccine to children as young as age 3, at select store locations nationwide.

“Walgreens specially trained pharmacists have extensive experience administering vaccines to eligible populations aged 3 and older and have safely administered over 100 million vaccines over the last three years to help keep them protected. We remain committed to providing our patients and communities access to COVID-19 services and medication, including testing, vaccination and treatment,” said the company in a statement.

Parents or legal guardians can schedule appointments starting tomorrow ahead of the first vaccine shipments scheduled to arrive at select pharmacies within the week. Appointments will be available next week and will be added daily as stores receive additional vaccines on a rolling basis.
