Costco isn’t the only retailer offering vaccine appointments. Walgreens and CVS Pharmacy are also distributing vaccines across the country.

Nearly 13 percent of the U.S. population has received at least the first shot of the COVID-19 vaccine, according to NPR. More than 5 percent have received the second dose.

Over 28 million people in the U.S. have been infected with COVID-19, according to Johns Hopkins. 497,000 people have died.
