COVID-19 vaccines available for anyone 12 years and older at all Rite Aid locations

Rite Aid Wednesday announced it is administering COVID-19 vaccines to anyone 12 or older at all locations offering the Pfizer vaccine, following the latest guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Guardians for individuals under 18 can now schedule appointments using the Rite Aid scheduling tool found at www.RiteAid.com/covid-19. Those ages 12 through 17 are only authorized to be vaccinated with the Pfizer vaccine, per CDC guidance.

Additionally, Rite Aid is enabling schools and organizations in its footprint to inquire about vaccine clinics directly with the company by visiting www.riteaid.com/covid-19/community-clinics. The clinic inquiry tool provides a seamless and efficient way to organize on-site vaccine clinics, helping to bring the vaccine directly into communities and reach people at schools, community centers, churches, and workplaces. Clinics are conducted by Rite Aid’s pharmacy team.

“Opening eligibility for those 12 and older is a major step forward in the effort to get as many people vaccinated as possible and help bring an end to the pandemic,” said Jim Peters, chief operating officer, Rite Aid. “But we know that availability of the vaccine is just one step. It’s important to reach people where they learn, gather, work, and worship. To make the vaccination process as safe and seamless as possible, we’ve designed a tool on our website that makes scheduling a pop-up clinic simple. Whether it’s COVID-19 testing or vaccine clinics, we’re eager to help our communities thrive.”
