KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) — CVS Health announced that it is now accepting walk-in COVID-19 appointments at CVS Pharmacy locations across the country, including 148 locations in Tennessee.

Same-day scheduling is also available at CVS.com. To stay account for same-day cancellation, the company’s COVID-19 vaccine scheduler is updated throughout the day.

“We continue to orchestrate an all-out effort to vaccinate the nation against COVID-19,” said CVS Health President and CEO Karen S. Lynch. “Thanks to the dedication and effort of our colleagues, I am proud to say we helped achieve the President’s accelerated 100-day goal of 200 million vaccines and have administered over 17 million COVID-19 vaccine doses to date. Our customers continue to give us high satisfaction scores based on their interactions with colleagues and our customer-centric digital approach for scheduling appointments.”

As of May 5, CVS Health is now vaccinating in more than 8,300 stores across 49 states, Puerto Rico and Washington, D.C.
