NEW ORLEANS, La. (BRPROUD) – Do you need to get the COVID-19 vaccine?
If so, starting on Friday, February 12, Walmart and Sam’s Club pharmacies are providing another place for you to get the vaccine.
Appointments are available every day of the week and “you do not have to be a member of Sam’s Club to sign-up for an appointment.”
This is all made possible through the U.S. Federal Retail Pharmacy Program.
“Ninety percent of the country lives within ten miles of a Walmart. We’re committed to helping people live better – and healthier lives – in Louisiana, and we take that role very seriously,” said Dr. Cheryl Pegus, Executive Vice President, Health & Wellness. “We want to help the country re-open, but we can only achieve that through widespread COVID-19 vaccination. We’re proud to work together with the federal government, states, communities, customers and associates to expand access to the vaccine and reach that goal.”
