Like other stores and department stores, recently Costco announced that in its stores they will begin to apply the vaccine against the coronavirus, which is great news for the public and above all, for those who are regular customers of said establishment.
Weeks ago, other stores that have locations throughout the United States, such as Walmart, Sam’s Club, Albertsons, HEB, Hy-Vee, Walgreens joined the work of trying to immunize as many inhabitants as possible with the intention of reducing considerably the number of infections and deaths from coronavirus.
Now, Costco indicated that it will be in its 46 stores that it has in different cities and states of the country where people can go to get the COVID-19 vaccine, which will also depend on where and how many vaccines are available.
For the moment, Costco already has vaccines in its warehouses in Arizona, Hawaii, Idaho, Mississippi, New York, New Mexico, Oregon, Pennsylvania and Washington.
Remember that previously, in the Costco pharmacy vaccines against influenza, hepatitis A, meningitis and tetanus are administered, which have a cost. In the case of the coronavirus, this it will be completely free.
Another good news is that Unlike that to buy at Costco you need a membership in the store, to get vaccinated in it you do not need to have it.
