BENTONVILLE, Ark.— Walmart is hosting Walmart Wellness Day events are more than 4,600 of its pharmacies around the country on Saturday, October 8, offering customers a convenient way to bolster their immunity ahead of the arrival of peak flu season.
“As we move into the fall and winter seasons, we want to do our part in helping families remain protected through immunizations,” said Kevin Host, Walmart’s senior vice president of pharmacy. “Wellness Day is such an impactful event because it allows customers an opportunity to check in on health priorities, meet our incredible pharmacists and engage in conversations around wellness. Along with our pharmacies, we also deliver care through Walmart Health Virtual Care and Walmart Health Centers, which highlights our commitment to improving access to quality, affordable healthcare.”
Walmart Wellness Day activities, set to be held from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., will include the following health resources, administered by qualified pharmacy teams:
- Affordable immunizations, including flu, pneumonia, shingles, HPV, measles, mumps, whooping cough (TDAP), Hep A & B and more
- No out-of-pocket cost to patient COVID-19 bivalent boosters
