Vaccines are available at CVS, Rite Aid and Walgreens, as well as major retail chains including Kroger, Walmart and Albertsons. Individuals can find the most convenient location and available appointments using the federal tool at Vaccines.gov. Getting the jab is free for everyone.
The CDC also notes a number of resources available to help parents and individuals manage how they can get a vaccine, including transport via Uber and Lyft and child care from the YMCA and KinderCare.

Some areas are providing vaccines at special locations: New York City has used the Jacob Javits Center to distribute vaccines, and it can be found at some travel centers, including train stations and airports such as San Francisco International Airport and LAX.

Veterans and their families can even get the shot at their VA.
