The company said the big hiring event is set to take place ahead of what is expected to be a more active flu season. The additional hires will help with flu vaccinations as well as helping to meet the continued demand for COVID-19 vaccinations and testing.

“CVS Health has administered more than 34 million COVID-19 vaccines and more than 32 million tests,” according to the news release.
