Federal program allows Indiana and Michigan teachers to make vaccine appointment
A federal program will now allow teachers across the nation to sign up for the COVID-19 vaccine.
The Federal Retail Pharmacy Program for COVID-19 Vaccination is a collaboration between the federal government, national pharmacy partners, and states and territories, the CDC said.
This program is being executed based on the availability of vaccine supplies, the CDC reported. Pharmacies like Meijer are involved in this process in Indiana and Michigan.
In a COVID-19 virtual update Wednesday morning, Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb announced that the White House had informed state governors of the program, which prioritizes teachers of all ages.
Teachers interested in signing up for an appointment must go through the pharmacy’s website.
The following pharmacies in Indiana and Michigan are participating in this program:
- Walmart (Indiana)
- Kroger (Indiana)
- Meijer (Indiana and Michigan)
- Rite Aid (Michigan)
- LeaderNET and Medicine Shoppe, Cardinal Health’s PSAOs (Michigan)
