Bentonville, Arkansas-based Walmart is offering low-cost flu shots in 4,600-plus Walmart pharmacies nationwide via walk-up and community flu shot clinics.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends everyone 6 months and older receive a flu shot each year. Further, the CDC recommends COVID-19 vaccination for everyone aged 12 and older, especially as cases are on the rise.
Walmart pharmacies across the country offer both vaccines, and customers can receive a low-cost flu and free COVID-19 vaccine at the same time, if they choose.
“It’s important we don’t let our guard down with our health this fall. Between COVID-19 vaccines and the annual flu shot, we know people may be experiencing ‘vaccine fatigue,’ but these preventive measures have never been more vital to keeping our communities healthy,” said Del Sloneker, SVP and chief operating officer of health and wellness. “It’s on all of us to do our part and is just another way we’re making it simple to live better, healthier lives.”
Walmart’s flu shots are administered by certified pharmacists and health care professionals who are trusted members of their communities and understand local health needs. In addition to just being able to walk-in, Walmart also continues to have a variety of initiatives in place to make it easy to get vaccinated while following COVID-19 safety protocols, including hosting flu shot clinics in select markets. These events will make it quick, easy and convenient for customers to get flu shots in stores nationwide.
Walmart pharmacists can answer any medication related questions and its pharmacies provide COVID-19 tests, prescription and over-the-counter medication, as well as a variety of immunizations, including COVID-19, flu, measles, mumps, rubella (MMR), varicella (chicken pox), HPV, tetanus, whooping cough (TDAP) and more.
Customers with a Walmart+ membership can also get free shipping on store purchases and reduced prices on select prescriptions.
