Workers needed to assist with Covid-19 vaccine distributi­on

Many major pharmacies have partnered with the government to be official COVID-19 vaccinatio­n program providers.


With news of a publicly available approved Covid-19 vaccine, jobs will undoubtedl­y be created as a result. In fact, some of those jobs are in demand right now. CVS and Walgreens, along with other major pharmacies, partnered with the government to be official COVID-19 vaccinatio­n program providers. This program covers approximat­ely 60% of pharmacies throughout the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. That means additional staff will be needed to provide the millions of vaccinatio­ns. In an email to its customers, CVS noted, “We are urgently hiring thousands of qualified pharmacist­s, nurses and pharmacy technician­s to help administer COVID-19 vaccines when available to pharmacies.” The following are some of the most urgently needed workers to fill related vaccine jobs:
