Reportedly, Walgreen Boots Alliance (WBA) has overseen more than 29 million COVID-19 vaccines at its stores so far, driven by a surge in parts of the United States that had been low in vaccinations, reporting an increase of more than 30% in states such as Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, and Texas in the past few week. COVID-19 hospitalizations and deaths have increased in the U.S. last week, along with the concerns over the highly contagious Delta variant.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s latest guidance recommends that fully vaccinated individuals wear masks, also surging cases due to the Delta variant, have forced companies to revise their policies. Walgreens updated its masking and vaccination policies, it encouraged customers, including those who are vaccinated, to wear masks. The retailer announced the vaccination mandate, which requires employees to be inoculated by Sept. 30 but does not apply to U.S. employees working in its stores, distribution centers, or other facilities.
