H-E-B has partnered with the government to distribute the COVID-19 vaccine. 

Our partners at KWTX report that H-E-B is one of the large chains that will help administer vaccines to customers. 

Although the United States has yet to authorize or approve a vaccine to prevent the coronavirus disease, the federal government is beginning to put plans in motion to make one or more COVID-19 vaccines available as soon as possible. 

As the CDC plans for several possibilities, partnerships are merging. So far, several large chains such as Rite Aid, CVS, Walgreens, and H-E-B have already agreed to help distribute the vaccine to the public once a vaccine is released.

The goal is for everyone to quickly get a COVID-19 vaccination as soon as large quantities are available. The plan is to have several thousand vaccination providers available, including doctors' offices, retail pharmacies, hospitals, and federally qualified health centers.
