Some CVS Pharmacies Now Offering Walk-In Vaccinations

Once precious vaccination appointments appear to be more plentiful by the day.  For instance, you can now get a shot without an appointment at any CVS pharmacy that offers them, the company announced Wednesday.

More than 1,100 locations in California offer the vaccine, CVS says. Same-day scheduling for appointments, within one hour in some cases, is also available.

As of May 3, more than 13 million people in the state, nearly 42% of those eligible, have been fully vaccinated, and an additional 6 million have received one shot and are waiting for a second.

According to tracking by the Los Angeles Times, the daily number of vaccine doses administered in the state has been steadily falling for the last few weeks, with a steeper drop coming in May.
