Walgreens Launches Its Coast-to-Coast Mobile Bus Clinic Tour

DEERFIELD, Ill., May 17, 2021 – Ensuring the equitable distribution of COVID-19 vaccines has been a priority of Walgreens since the start of the pandemic.

On May 3, Walgreens announced the launch of multiple mobile clinics, starting with a mobile trailer that continues to make stops throughout Chicago.
