CVS Health announced Thursday it will offer COVID-19 vaccinations at 119 more pharmacies in California beginning on Sunday.

The additional locations bring to 286 the total number of CVS Pharmacy locations administering a vaccine in the state.

“We’re proud to play a part in increasing access to the vaccine to as many people as possible to enable reopening efforts in the communities we serve,” said Neela Montgomery, executive vice president of CVS Health.

“Feedback on every aspect of the vaccination process has been incredibly positive, from the digital experience to interacting with our team of health care professionals whose incredible efforts are helping to move us one step closer towards the eventual end of the pandemic,” she said.

Vaccines at participating CVS Pharmacy locations in California will be available to individuals meeting state eligibility criteria, as well as K-12 teachers and staff and childcare workers.

Patients must register in advance at CVS.com or through the CVS Pharmacy app, and people without online access can call CVS customer service at (800) 746-7287. Walk-in vaccinations without an appointment will not be provided.
