PORTLAND, Ore. -- Walmart will now be offering the COVID-19 vaccine at all 45 pharmacies in Oregon.
Vaccines are being administered via both walk-up and scheduled appointments. Additionally, the company is rolling out new programs to both encourage people to get a vaccine and continue efforts to increase access across the country.
“Now that supply and eligibility have expanded, it’s even more important for us to reach underserved and vulnerable populations to ensure equitable distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine,” said Dr. Cheryl Pegus, executive vice president, Health & Wellness. “Widespread vaccination is the only way we will eventually end the pandemic and help our country reopen, and we don’t want anyone to get left behind as we enter this new chapter in our fight against COVID-19.”
The pharmacies are open seven days a week and are administering the Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines.
