DALLAS (NEXSTAR) — U.S. pharmacy chain CVS plans to hire 15,000 workers over the next few months, including thousands of work-from-home jobs, as the flu season arrives and we wait on an anticipated COVID-19 vaccine.

According to a news release, more than 10,000 of the positions will be based in its pharmacy locations and could potentially help distribute novel coronavirus tests and vaccines.

“We’re estimating a much greater need for trained pharmacy technicians this year given the continued presence of COVID-19 in our communities,” said Lisa Bisaccia, Chief Human Resources Officer, CVS Health. “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.”

The company says many of the positions are temporary with the possibility of becoming permanent.

CVS also announced it’s also looking to hire several thousand work-from-home customer service representatives across the country, with hundreds of openings in several towns.

The company says the full-time, work-from-home opportunities start at 30 hours per week and offer a flexible schedule. You can apply here.
