  • CVS Health is now offering GlaxoSmithKline's Shingrix at its more than 9800 locations across the US as the new shingles vaccine continues to gain momentum, reported CNBC.

  • Walgreens Boots Alliance said last week that Shingrix was available at most of its Walgreens and Duane Reade stores, while the vaccine also became available at Walgreens Healthcare Clinics.

  • The CVS rollout comes about a month after the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended Shingrix on its annual list of vaccination recommendations and nearly five months since the FDA approved it.
