Largest single-day health screening event Walmart Wellness Day a 'huge success'


BENTONVILLE, Ark. – Walmart Wellness Day, the largest single-day health screening in the nation, was another huge success the company shared with Drug Store News.

Nearly 250,000 free health screenings were conducted and 52,000 immunizations were administered in more than 4,600 Walmart stores last month.

"Walmart’s expert pharmacists deserve a huge thanks as they were the backbone of the event, helping individuals and countless families better understand their health," commented Molly Blakeman, Walmart spokesperson. "Similar to last year, we’ve already received notes of thanks from several customers who benefited from the screenings, some even finding out for the first time about a more serious condition."

And Walmart's supplier partners shared nearly 2.5 million product samples, many of which highlight the “Total Health” options available at Walmart—from health-related products to healthy eating options and everything in between.

The following companies served as sponsors for the Walmart Wellness Day event: GoJo, Pfizer, US Nutrition, GSK, Johnson & Johnson, Clorox, Kleenex, Dannon, Kellogg’s, Mars, Vega, Trividia, Bausch & Lomb, Becton Dickinson, Bayer, 3M, Reckitt-Benckiser, Zeiss, Traditional Medicinals, Iovate, Equal, True Science, Boomchickapop, Prestige, Enjoy Life Foods, Voortman Cookies and Amneal.
