Giant Pharmacies Begin Vaccines for Front-Line Workers

Giant Food pharmacies are ramping up to begin administering doses of the coronavirus vaccine for front-line workers in D.C.

Mayor Muriel Bowser said five Giant stores in the city have each received 600 doses, WTTG-TV (Channel 5) reported.

“Giant is thrilled to be one of the first retail locations in Washington, D.C., to help play a critical role in administering the COVID-19 vaccine for essential health care workers [and] doing our part to maximize access to the vaccine quickly and efficiently,” said Paul Zvaleny, director of pharmacy operations at Giant, WTTG reported.

The shots will be given daily from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

“It’s important for keeping them healthy and safe and for me, as a manager, to show my staff, too, ‘I’m not afraid to get this vaccine, I want to get this vaccine,'” said Jana Berhow, Volunteers of America Chesapeake & Carolinas’ vice president for DC Programs, who signed up for the shots.

“We need to do what we can to keep our people safe,” she said, WTTG reported.

Two health care workers, Jim George and Bobble Steven, who’ve already received the vaccine said they feel safe and secure and did not experience any reactions during the injections, WTTG reported.
