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 potential 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.
