The company hires additional employees every year to help out with flu season, but the demand is even higher with COVID-19 testing, vaccination, and booster shots.

CVS Health is hiring 25,000 new employees nationally to help address the demands of flu season, and COVID-19 testing and vaccination.

Most of the available positions are for full-time, part-time, and temporary licensed pharmacists, trained pharmacy technicians and nurses at CVS Pharmacy store locations.

The entire hiring process is digital, and includes an online application, virtual job tryout and hiring. There will be no on-site applications or interviews.

"Every flu season we need additional team members," said Neela Montgomery, Executive Vice President, CVS Health and President, CVS Pharmacy, "but this year we're looking for even more.

"With the continued presence of COVID-19 in our communities, we're estimating a much greater need for pharmacists, trained pharmacy technicians, nurses, and retail store associates. These jobs offer a rewarding opportunity to really make an impact on public health in our country."

Candidates can apply for these open positions using the company's mobile apply feature by texting “CVS” to 25000 or by visiting the CVS Health Career Website.

CVS Health has administered more than 34 million COVID-19 vaccines and more than 32 million tests.
