BRADENTON, Fla. (WWSB) - Gov. Ron DeSantis announced that CVS Health will administer COVID-19 vaccines at 76 additional CVS Pharmacy locations across Florida.

The 76 retail locations are in addition to the 81 stores previously announced in February, bringing the total number of CVS Health vaccination sites to 157. These include CVS Pharmacy, CVS Pharmacy y más and Navarro Discount Pharmacy locations.

There is still currently only one CVS location in the Suncoast -- in Bradenton -- administering vaccines.

“I’m pleased to join CVS Health today to announce this expansion of 76 additional vaccination sites throughout Florida,” said DeSantis. “With over 150 locations statewide, CVS Health is significantly expanding access to the vaccine for seniors and eligible Floridians. I thank them for being such a strong partner in our efforts to ensure that every senior who wants a shot, can get a shot.”
