Access to the COVID-19 vaccine continues to expand in Mississippi with the announcement that 85 Walmart and Sam’s Club pharmacies are now offering the shot.
All Walmart and Sam’s Club pharmacy locations across Mississippi are now accepting walk-in vaccine appointments, as supply allows, in addition to scheduled appointments. Customers who schedule an appointment can complete pre-vaccination paperwork ahead of time, if interested.
Walmart pharmacies are open seven days a week (Sam’s Club pharmacies are closed on Sundays) and are administering the approved J&J, Pfizer and Moderna vaccines.
“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,” Dr. Cheryl Pegus, Walmart executive vice president, Health & Wellness, said. “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.”
