Reporters at Kaiser Health News crunched CDC data on COVID-19 vaccine waste and found that CVS and Walgreens together were responsible for nearly 128,500 wasted shots as of late March. CDC data suggests that the companies have wasted more doses than states, U.S. territories, and federal agencies combined. However, with supplies now exceeding demand, the CDC is prioritizing shots in arms over concerns about waste.
