Many people scrambled to get appointments for the vaccine through CVS in Virginia on Tuesday.
By Tuesday afternoon, all 26,000 appointments for the vaccine had been reserved.
10 On Your Side got an email wondering about the brand of vaccine: When you do get an appointment, which vaccine will you be getting?
CVS is receiving and administering only the Moderna vaccine.
The FDA approved the Moderna vaccine just after Pfizer’s, but both are highly effective and use mRNA technology.
Clinical trials show Moderna is 94% effective in preventing COVID-19.
