Walgreens said it will begin receiving more than 480,000 Covid-19 vaccine doses weekly as part of the broader effort to increase vaccination at U.S. pharmacies in more than 20 states and jurisdictions.

The Biden administration earlier this week said it was increasing the number of doses sent to states while doubling the number of doses sent directly to U.S. retail pharmacies including CVS Health and Walgreens.

On Friday, Walgreens said it will “receive a weekly allocation of more than 480,000 Covid-19 vaccine doses” beginning Feb. 25. Drugstores in the following U.S. states and jurisdictions will get the doses: Alaska, Arizona, California, Chicago, Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, New York, New York City, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming.
