Costco begins offering coronavirus vaccines at Bay Area store – San Francisco Chronicle

Costco announced Saturday that it would begin providing coronavirus vaccines at select locations in California, including one in Marin County.

The superstore’s pharmacy in Novato will administer the vaccine, but currently only health care workers are eligible, according to Costco’s booking page. There is currently some availability on Friday.

Some Costco stores Los Angeles, Riverside and San Bernardino counties are also offering vaccines.

Outside of California, Costco stores in New York, Oregon and Puerto Rico are also among those providing the vaccine.

Costco officials did not immediately respond to a request for further information, including when other locations in the Bay Area might begin offering vaccines.

Several CVS locations in the Bay Area are carrying the vaccine, in cities including Alameda, Berkeley, Oakland, San San Francisco and San Jose. Additional CVS locations will carry the COVID-19 vaccine once supply becomes more available, the pharmacy chain said.

Costco’s website said the store would be offering a “limited” number of coronavirus vaccines — typically Moderna — at its available locations. The site discouraged patients from directly contacting Costco pharmacies, “as they are unable to schedule an appointment or provide current eligibility requirements.”
