COVID-19 Vaccinations Underway at Brookshire Brothers Pharmacies
Brookshire Brothers pharamcies across rural Texas received allotments of the COVID-19 vaccine this week.
The Lufkin, Texas-based grocery chain is following the state’s priority grouping system by vaccinating health care worker populations and residents of long-term care facilities before moving to people over the age of 65 and adults with chronic medical conditions.
Those who currently qualify to receive the vaccine must make an appointment with their local pharmacy, the company said in a statement today. The vaccine is not available to the general public at this time.
“We ask for your patience as we provide this valuable service to our communities, said Laura Edmundson, director of Brookshire Brothers’ Clinical Pharmacy Programs. “We also ask the general public to limit their calls concerning the vaccine so our staff can focus on serving customers and vaccinating the top-priority groups.”
