Stop & Shop pharmacies offer antiviral drugs against COVID-19

All 55 Stop & Shop pharmacies in New York will now offer Paxlovid and Molnupiravir free to customers. Both COVID-19 antiviral drugs are Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved and require a prescription from a healthcare provider.

Additionally, all 230 Stop & Shop pharmacies along the East Coast are now able to administer a second COVID-19 booster shot to eligible patients. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), people over 50 and some immunocompromised patients can receive the booster.

“As the COVID-19 pandemic has evolved over the past two years, Stop & Shop Pharmacy has provided our customers and communities with convenient and safe ways to protect their families and loved ones,” said Katie Thornell, Director of Pharmacy Operations. “By now offering COVID-19 antivirals, as well as second boosters to eligible customers, we look forward to helping more community members defend themselves and their families against COVID-19 and its evolving variants.

Additionally, the grocer is working with the Biden administration to distribute up to eight free rapid COVID-19 tests to eligible Medicare Part B beneficiaries.

Albertsons Cos. also offers free COVID-19 testing to customers with Medicare Part B coverage and Medicare Advantage plans. Eligible customers can receive up to eight over-the-counter tests each month without an appointment until the COVID-19 public health emergency ends.
