Walmart and Sam’s Club announced Tuesday, May 4 that COVID-19 vaccines are now available to customers and associates in all of their more than 5,100 pharmacy locations nationwide. This includes the 98 Walmart and Sam’s Club pharmacies in Wisconsin. 

Vaccines are being administered via both walk-up and scheduled appointments.

"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."  

Customers who schedule an appointment can complete pre-vaccination paperwork ahead of time, if interested.
