Giant Eagle requiring COVID vaccination appointments again: Here's why

CLEVELAND — Citing an anticipated increase in demand from recent booster guidance, Giant Eagle has announced they are returning to an appointment-only system for all COVID vaccinations. The change, which was announced Sunday, goes into effect immediately.

“Giant Eagle Pharmacy is now able to provide Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine boosters to certain patients, if it has been at least six months since they received the second dose of the initial Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine series,” according to a press release from Giant Eagle.
