Rite Aid has added four days this month when educators, school employees and childcare workers will be given priority to book coronavirus vaccine appointments.
Rite Aid offered COVID-19 vaccine appointments only to teachers, school staff and child care workers for two days last week in seven states, including New Jersey, the pharmacy chain previously announced. Rite Aid announced it would add days to the priority window through the end of the month on:
- Friday, March 19
- Saturday, March 20
- Friday, March 26
- Saturday, March 27
“Rite Aid recognizes and appreciates the hard work of our teachers, school employees, and childcare staff over the last year,” the pharmacy chain said in a statement. “The company is proud to continue its work to help bring an end to the pandemic and protect our communities – including educators – from COVID-19.”
Appointments can be scheduled at Rite Aid’s website. Other people eligible for vaccinations can schedule appointments all other days.
