CVS embedded itself on the front lines of the COVID pandemic as one of the central hubs for distributing vaccines to local communities. In the first quarter of 2021 alone, the company, now fully integrated with health insurer Aetna following a mammoth $69 billion acquisition, produced more than $69 billion in revenues. In 2020, revenue grew $12 billion compared to the previous year. Karen Lynch, who became CEO in February 2021, believes that “millions of new customers will engage with CVS Health for the first time through testing and vaccine administration.” The company’s upbeat guidance for 2021, meanwhile, relies on pharmacy sales, rather than retail, to carry the revenue growth.
