CVS Health said today it will offer 250,00 total doses of COVID-19 vaccinations to eligible populations at pharmacy locations in 11 states beginning Feb. 11.

Seventy stores in Texas will receive 38,000 vaccinations, the company said in a press release. The Austin-American Statesman reports the Canyon Lake CVS in Startzville is one of four Central Texas communities included in the initial rollout.

Appointments will become available for booking as early as — but not before — Feb. 9 as stores receive shipment.

Vaccines in a retail setting will be offered on an appointment-only basis via CVS.com or through the CVS pharmacy app. For more information call 1-800-746-7287.

Other cities in line for the vaccine include San Antonio, Abilene, Amarillo, Beaumont, Brownsville, El Paso, Houston, Laredo, Lubbock, Midland, Plano and Waco.

The vaccines are sourced directly from the federal government through the pharmacy partnership program. As more supply becomes available, CVS will expand its vaccine rollout to other states while increasing the number of stores offering vaccinations.

“Our presence in communities across the country makes us an ideal partner for administering vaccines in a safe, convenient and familiar manner,” said Karen Lynch, president and chief executive officer of CVS Health. “This is particularly true for underserved communities, which have been a focus throughout the pandemic.”

CVS said its long-term care vaccination effort remains on schedule. The first round of vaccine doses was administered to nearly 8,000 skilled nursing facilities and second doses are more than 60-percent complete.

First doses at all long-term care facilities that selected CVS Health to provide COVID-19 vaccinations — more than 40,000 total — will be complete by mid-February.

Most states chose activation dates for assisted living and other facilities well into January, which prevented earlier scheduling of clinics.

As supply becomes available the company will expand its vaccination clinics to other communities and will offer additional appointmens.
