As demand for the COVID-19 vaccine continues to decrease, there are now some changes happening at the state's mass vaccination sites.
Walmart Pharmacies are open seven days a week, and are administering the approved Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, according to a statement. Individuals are not required to be a member to receive the COVID-19 vaccine at Sam’s Club.
Appointments can be made at walmart.com/COVIDvaccine and samsclub.com/covid. Customers who scheduled an appointment have the option of completing their pre-vaccination paperwork in advance.
