Meijer offering limited walk-up COVID-19 vaccines at pharmacies
Meijer is rolling out a new vaccine program at all of its pharmacy locations.
The retailer announced that in the wake of crossing 1 million vaccine doses being administered, its pharmacy locations will be offering walk-up clinics.
“The 1 million vaccine milestone is a tremendous achievement by our incredibly hard-working pharmacy teams,” Meijer president and CEO Rick Keyes said. “When the vaccine rollout began, we were focused on moving as quickly as possible to keep our communities safe. Achieving this number in just over three months is a true demonstration of the focus and tenacity of the Meijer team members involved in this important initiative.”
All of Meijer’s stores will have a minimum of 100 doses per week for customers to receive either the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines on a first-come, first-serve basis.
“I’m very pleased we are now entering into this phase of the vaccine initiative,” Jason Beauch, Meijer's vice president of pharmacy said. “Our teams have worked so hard to vaccinate a very large number of people in a relatively short amount of time. The ability to offer the vaccines on a walk-up basis at every Meijer store demonstrates we are getting closer to ensuring everyone has the ability to get vaccinated.”
The retailer will still offer scheduled appointments for those interested in obtaining their COVID-19 vaccination.
