Walmarts in Missouri among other pharmacies to offer COVID vaccinations

News

ST. LOUIS– Starting Friday, February 12, 102 pharmacies in Missouri will join the effort to administer COVID vaccines to eligible residents.

Eighty-one Walmart and Sam’s Club locations will begin receiving vaccines from the federal allocation.

Appointments will be made based on the number of vaccines each location receives. You can try and schedule an appointment through Walmart or Sam’s Club.

This is part of the White House plan to launch the Federal Retail Pharmacy Program for the COVID vaccine.

Walmarts in Saint Louis, Shrewsbury, Potosi, and Cuba are on the list. You can find a complete list of the Missouri locations here.

Vaccines also will be heading to 21 Health Mart independent pharmacies across Missouri in the near future.

The pharmacies will receive 18,000 doses a week in addition to the amount the state receives.

The CDC says the federal program is being implemented incrementally based on the availability of vaccine. As vaccine availability increases over time, the program will expand to ultimately include all 40,000+ pharmacies across the nation.

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage. Our commitment to politics isn’t just during an election year. We produce two political shows that air every weekend.
