MINNEAPOLIS (KXAN) — Target and CVS announced a partnership Wednesday that will allow CVS to administer the COVID-19 vaccine to people at CVS pharmacies located within Target stores in 17 states.

This vaccine will be for both Target and CVS customers as well as employees at more than 600 locations.

Target says it already supports CVS-administered vaccinations every year for the flu, as well as shingles and pneumonia. This is an extension of that partnership.

In-store CVS pharmacies will be offering vaccines at Target locations in the following states: Texas, Virginia, New York, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Massachusetts. Rhode Island, New Jersey, Maryland, Florida, South Carolina, Alabama, Louisiana, Arizona, California, Hawaii and Ohio.

“We’ll continue to partner closely as they administer the vaccine while following state and federal guidelines. We’re also making fitting rooms available to CVS at select stores to host appointments,” Target said in a news release.

To apply to get the COVID-19 vaccine at a CVS store inside Target, you’ll still need to go to CVS.com to check your eligibility and see if there’s a participating location near you.

You can also check out other places to sign up for the COVID-19 vaccine if those sign-up appointments are full.

Target said it plans to expand this partnership, saying it’s “looking forward to providing even more support in the coming months.”

Target also plans to work on public vaccine education efforts, including the Health Action Alliance and the Ad Council’s new campaign. The campaign seeks to reach communities of color, which have been disproportionately affected by the pandemic and are getting the vaccine at lower rates.
