The Trump administration announced on Friday that two major pharmacies will help distribute a pending coronavirus vaccine to American seniors, especially those in nursing homes.

Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar said in a Twitter post that the public-private partnership with CVS Health and Walgreens will deliver free vaccinations to seniors in nursing homes.

Fox Business reported that residents of these facilities will be able to access the vaccine at no charge.

CVS and Walgreens will coordinate on-site clinic dates with facilities, and will most likely be three visits over a period of two months.
