As demand for COVID-19 vaccines begins to fade, Target is now offering shoppers a $5 coupon if they get the vaccine at a CVS pharmacy in its stores. 

Target is already paying hourly team members four hours of pay and free rides through Lyft to go get the vaccine. 

"The health and safety of our guests and team members is always our No. 1 focus," Target wrote this week. 

More than 600 CVS pharmacies within Target stores are currently scheduling COVID-19 vaccine appointments.

The demand for vaccines has fallen off, but President Biden announced a goal this week of getting at least one dose to 70% of Americans by July 4. 

"I’d like to get it 100%, but I think realistically we can get to that place between now and July Fourth," Biden said.
