As per reports, Walgreen Boots Alliance (WBA) has administered more than 20 million COVID-19 vaccinations as of May 24 closer to the target of about 30 million shots this year. The company has also done more than 8 million COVID-19 tests, informed Walgreens senior vice president Rick Gates.
On March 31, Walgreens raised its outlook for earnings for the year ended Sept. 30 and relied on administering 26 million to 34 million COVID-19 vaccine doses in 2021. As COVID-19 cases in the United States reduce to levels not seen since March of 2020, Americans go off masks and abandon social distancing protocols. The retail giant Walgreens is watching for a return to a “more normal” cough and cold season this fall, informed Gates. The use of medicines to treat cough and cold will certainly go up in the fall, but whether demand returns to pre-pandemic levels will is still uncertain.
