Pharmacy giant CVS announced Tuesday, Feb. 2, it would begin COVID-19 vaccinations for eligible groups at 100 of its stores across California starting Feb. 11.

The shots will be offered at Southern California locations in cities including Los Angeles, Huntington Beach, Newport Beach, and Irvine, though CVS Health spokeswoman Monica Prinzing said the handful of cities listed in a news release Tuesday would not be the only places with participating stores.

“The list of specific stores will be available on CVS.com as stores receive shipments of vaccine and appointments become available,” Prinzing said.

People prioritized to get shots under public health guidelines – currently, health care workers, seniors age 65 and older, and long-term care residents – must register in advance on CVS’s website or through the CVS Pharmacy app. Anyone without internet access can call customer service at 800-746-7287.

CVS, like other vaccine administrators, is working with limited supplies and will not administer doses to walk-ups without appointments, the company said.

CVS previewed its plans the same day the Biden administration announced the federal government would start shipping coronavirus vaccines directly to retail pharmacies as part of the White House’s strategy to speed up vaccinations nationwide.
