Walmart pharmacies are hosting a "vax-a-thon" this week.👇
Walmart pharmacies across the country are now offering COVID-19 vaccinations in Canada and you don't even need an appointment to get one.
On Wednesday, August 18, the retailer confirmed that walk-in vaccine appointments are available for first or second doses at participating pharmacies "from coast-to-coast."
To celebrate, the company is hosting a "Vax-a-thon" on Thursday — which it is describing as a "one-day vaccine blitz" at more than 250 Walmart pharmacies in Canada. Participating pharmacists will be on hand to speak to customers about the effectiveness and safety of COVID-19 vaccines.
Pre-scheduled COVID-19 vaccine appointments will remain available for those who want to plan in advance, too.
Canadians don't have to be a current Walmart pharmacy patient to get a vaccine there and you can book ahead online here.
Health Canada has a robust website with all the latest information on COVID-19 vaccines and can answer any questions you may have.
