CARLISLE, Pa. —
The Giant Company is teaming up with U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to become a future COVID-19 vaccine provider.
The company and its 132 Giant and Martin’s in-store pharmacies announced Friday that they have signed on with HHS to provide the vaccine when there is one authorized or approved and recommended for use in the United States.
“Our pharmacists are trusted health advisors in the local communities that we serve and well-equipped to safely administer future COVID-19 vaccines,” said Leigh Shirley, director of pharmacy operations for The Giant Company. “Being part of this federal pharmacy program lays the groundwork once a vaccine is available to help increase access to and distribution of the vaccine.”
More information about the distribution of a COVID-19 vaccine will be announced in the future.
