The new pharmacy is called Pharmacy Express, and it will be available in CVS stores nationwide starting Wednesday.

Customers can access the website through a link on their mobile device.
Cvs has said it will expand its online pharmacy to other locations as well, but the company declined to provide any details about when this might happen.
The pharmacy giant said that users will be able to fill prescriptions online within 24 hours, and will be offered free 24/7 prescription refills when they complete a prescription.
The company is also expanding its app to offer in-person prescription ordering.
Customers can order their prescriptions online through the app, and they can also place orders directly with pharmacists.
Cuts for pharmacists, pharmacists in hospitals, and other hospitalsThe U.K. drug giant, which has been a leader in the global medical care industry, is slashing costs for pharmacisters and pharmacists at hospitals and other health care facilities by reducing staffing levels.
The cuts include a reduction of 10,000 pharmacists and pharmacist assistants, a 50 percent reduction in hospital pharmacy staffing and a 75 percent reduction for hospital pharmacy and pharmacy assistant staff.
The cuts are part of a planned $1.5 billion in savings the company announced in January.
Covid and the fluIn late December, Covid and influenza outbreaks in the United States and Europe caused a sharp decline in the number of prescriptions filled, and a number of hospitals began to ration the supply of prescription medications to patients.
CVS announced that it had begun to distribute flu shots and other flu-related vaccines at hospitals.
Cuvid and flu vaccinations are available free to anyone over the age of 18 who is enrolled in a plan.
Cvs says it has also increased the number and quality of vaccines being distributed to hospitals, clinics and other healthcare facilities in the past year.
