Grand Rapids, Michigan-based SpartanNash is hosting free COVID-19 vaccine booster clinics throughout October.
“At SpartanNash, we remain committed to making it as convenient as possible to get vaccinated and receive booster shots, especially for our high-risk community members,” said Eddie Garcia, director of pharmacy.
The vaccine clinics will be open for appointments from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Oct. 14, 21 and 28 at the location of the former Family Fare at 4325 Breton Road SE in Grand Rapids.
Online registration for 20-minute vaccine booster appointments is now available. People who are eligible include those who completed their first and second dose of the Pfizer vaccine more than six months ago and meet one of the following criteria:
- Individuals 65 years of age and older and residents in a long-term facility;
- Individuals 50 through 64 years of age with an underlying medical condition; and
- Individuals 18 to 49 years of age with an underlying medical condition or who work or live in a high-risk setting.

As an added layer of protection, flu vaccinations also will be made available at these clinics and may be safely administered at the same time as COVID-19 boosters.
In addition to the upcoming vaccination clinics, SpartanNash offers vaccines and booster shots in all company-owned pharmacy locations within Family Fare, D&W Fresh Market, VG’s Grocery, Martin’s Super Markets and Family Fresh Market stores. Additional community efforts have included partnering with local health care systems, health departments and other community partners to safely administer COVID-19 vaccines since January.
