Following Friday's approval from the CDC, CVS Health announced a number of CVS Pharmacy and MinuteClinic locations will begin to offer the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 booster shot to eligible populations.

According to CDC guidance released on Friday, those aged 65 and older, those who live in long-term care facilities and those aged 50 to 64 with an underlying medical condition should seek out a third dose of the Pfizer vaccine six months after their final shot.

Additionally, people aged 18 to 49 who have underlying medical conditions and anyone who is at increased risk for COVID-19 due to their jobs may seek a booster shot.
