Statement by Florida’s State Surgeon General Regarding CVS Health’s Tobacco Free Policy

“I am encouraged to see the commitment to health and wellness shown by CVS Health in its decision to remove tobacco products from their stores a month early. With more than 700 locations in Florida, CVS has seized an opportunity to improve health in our communities. I challenge other retailers to take this important step toward long term health for our state.”
