Colorado Walmart stores to offer COVID-19 vaccine starting Feb. 12

Nearly 30 Walmart or Sam's Club pharmacies will begin administering the vaccine through a federal retail program starting Feb. 12.

COLORADO, USA — The COVID-19 vaccine will be available at more than two dozen Walmart pharmacies across Colorado beginning Feb. 12 through the U.S. Federal Retail Pharmacy Program.

Those currently eligible for the vaccine in Colorado can schedule through the Walmart and Sam’s Club websites once appointments are available.

More than 1,000 Walmart and Sam’s Club pharmacies in 22 states are receiving federal vaccine allocations this week, with an emphasis on locations that reach customers in underserved communities with limited access to healthcare.

The initial vaccine supply is limited, and Walmart said it worked with the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and states to select locations using factors like population density, customer demographics, infection rates, and availability of local healthcare resources taken into consideration.

“Ninety percent of the country lives within ten miles of a Walmart. We’re committed to helping people live better – and healthier lives – in Colorado, and we take that role very seriously,” said Dr. Cheryl Pegus, Executive Vice President, Health & Wellness. “We want to help the country re-open, but we can only achieve that through widespread COVID-19 vaccination. We’re proud to work together with the federal government, states, communities, customers and associates to expand access to the vaccine and reach that goal.”

Gov. Jared Polis (D-Colorado) said last week that many of the pharmacies that would be getting vaccine doses would be in areas where hospital access was more challenging.

Vaccine supply and eligibility will vary based on state and local guidelines. In addition to appointments, the scheduler will provide a digital reminder when it is time to return for the second vaccine, which is why customers are asked to create a profile, helping to ensure customers receive the second dose of the vaccine in the timeframe required. You do not have to be a member of Sam’s Club to sign-up for an appointment. Appointments are available seven days a week, but exact timing will vary based on local availability of the vaccine.
