Pfizer booster shots are now available six months after completion of the original series for those age 65+; residents in long-term care facilities; age 50-64 at high risk of COVID-19 due to underlying medical conditions; age 18-49 at high risk of COVID-19 due to underlying medical conditions; and people aged 18-64 years who are at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission because of occupational or institutional setting.
In addition, Walmart will provide support to administer boosters to those in facilities with in-store events and onsite events at skilled nursing facilities.
Walmart and Sam’s Club will partner with community groups and local officials to administer vaccines and now boosters to eligible individuals in communities across the country, with a focus on rural and underserved areas.
All immunizations are administered by certified pharmacists, technicians and health care professionals who are trusted members of their communities.
