BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Walmart stores across the Commonwealth will begin administering the Covid-19 vaccine on Monday.
The booking system for appointments first went live on Friday. The company said stores will be giving out the two-shot vaccine from Moderna or the Johnson & Johnson one-shot vaccine.
Vaccines are being offered in dozens of stores in the state -- including in Brockton, Salem, Plymouth, Fall River, Lynn, Springfield, Worcester, Framingham and more.
The retailer joins pharmacies like CVS and Walgreens, which have been administering the Covid-19 vaccine at participating locations for several months.
As of now, Walmart is only giving the shot to people who are eligible under state guidelines -- which includes people over the age of 55, those with one or more high-risk medical condition and people who work in certain essential jobs -- like food service, retail, grocery, transportation and more.
To find a store near you and book an appointment, you can make an account on the Walmart website.
All Massachusetts residents over the age of 16 will become eligible to receive the vaccine starting on April 19, 2021. Those who are under the age of 18 will only be able to receive the Pfizer vaccine.
