DORAL, FL – The list of pharmacies offering COVID-19 vaccines in Florida is quickly growing as the country’s main goal for this year is to get vaccinated as many people as possible.
At the beginning of January, Publix started providing vaccines but as the demand keeps accelerating, more drugstore chains have been announcing its plans to distribute them.
Walmart and Sam’s Club are one of them. On Tuesday, Florida Governor, Ron DeSantis, announced 119 Walmarts across 34 counties in the state will begin giving out shots on Friday, reported the Sun Suntinel.
Both Supermarkets will receive 25,000 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine at their pharmacies to begin immunizations on seniors 65 and older.
“Walmart has so many people who shop here, if you look at the setup I think it will move smoothly and wind up being a good experience,” De Santis said while at a Walmart Supercenter in Jacksonville.
According to Sun Suntinel, two Walmart pharmacies will provide the vaccine in Miami-Dade: One located in Hialeah at 9300 NW 77th Ave., and another in Miami Gardens located at 17650 NW Second Ave.
Other pharmacies offering COVID-19 vaccines in Florida include Winn-Dixie and its sister companies Fresco y Más and Harveys, reported the Miami Herald.
It should be noted that people interested in getting vaccinated is required to make an appointment first online. They should also meet the criteria to be eligible which includes being a senior of 65 or older, a healthcare worker with direct patient contact or a resident or staff of an assisted living facility in Florida.
