Walmart to Host COVID-19 Community Vaccine Clinic at the Fairlane Village Mall

This week, Walmart will host a COVID-19 Community Vaccine Clinic in Pottsville.

Walmart made the announcement on Tuesday stating that the clinic will begin administering Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines inside the Fairlane Village Mall.

Eligible patients can schedule a vaccine appointment by phone at 1-800-753-8827.

Vaccines will be available to those who meet the current phase of vaccine eligibility Pennsylvania.  Insurance is not require, there is no cost to receive the vaccine, and appointments for second vaccinations will be made during the first appointment.  Walmart anticipates these events will take place over the next couple weeks as allocation allows.

Walmart is holding vaccine events in locations that prioritize access for those deemed most vulnerable, as well as operation capabilities.

"We have two goals as we administer vaccines:  first, to get as many shots in eligible arms as possible so we can start the process of reopening our country, and second, ensuring equitable vaccine access across the communities we serve, " said Dr. Cheryl Pegus, Executive Vice President, Health & Wellness.  "We will continue finding new ways to increase vaccination access for our customers as we work towards the eventual end of the pandemic."

Walmart is partnering with the CDC and states to move as quickly as possible to help administer vaccines to eligible populations in 35 participating states, Puerto Rico, and District of Columbia.
