850 licensed pharmacy technicians will be hired in Ohio.
The company began a nationwide recruitment effort in the fall.
“Additional team members typically are needed every flu season,” said Lisa Bisaccia, Chief Human Resources Officer, CVS Health. “However, we’re estimating a much greater need for trained pharmacy technicians this year given the continued presence of COVID-19 in our communities. These jobs offer a rewarding career opportunity, with flexible hours, advancement potential and a supportive environment while helping people on their path to better health.”
CVS says their opportunities for full-time personnel include competitive pay, paid training, and a generous benefits package.
For families trying to reconnect with loved ones who can soon have access to a vaccine, their moment together can’t come fast enough.
“It’s been more difficult on her she really is pretty lonely,” said Celeste Asmar of her 85-year-old mother in a nursing home.
“Just been hard; I mean, we were able to see each other this summer outside for half hour increments, things like that. We would get together once a week but it’s still really, really hard on her.”
“She was diagnosed with COVID last week actually,” said Asmar. “It was very upsetting. To be honest, there was a lot going on; she has been in rehab she had fallen and broken both of her knees in November.”
“I’m really excited about the vaccine because I don’t want anybody else to have to go through that; it’s just heartbreaking to watch. She’s old, she’s scared and she has to do it alone. I don’t want to see that for anybody.”
