Walmart To Provide COVID-19 Vaccines At All Stores
Walmart and Sam's Club will provide COVID-19 vaccinations to anyone who walks in or schedules an appointment at their pharmacy locations in California and across the nation.
As vaccine supplies surge in the United States and eligibility has opened to people age 16 or older, Dr. Cheryl Pegus, who oversees Walmart's health and wellness unity, says the company should prioritize distributing the vaccine to underserved and vulnerable populations.
"Widespread vaccination is the only way we will eventually end the pandemic and help our country re-open, and we don't want anyone to get left behind as we enter this new chapter in our fight against COVID-19," Pegus said.
Walmart and Sam's Club have launched an educational campaign, "Get Out the Vaccine," to galvanize people to get vaccinated and have partnered with organizations in vulnerable communities.
