As the country continues to make health and safety a top priority in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic and with the anticipation of a busy flu season, Walmart is focused on providing accessible and affordable immunizations and vaccines for customers.

Walmart’s quarterly Wellness Day on Saturday, Sept. 25 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. will turn into a special immunization event in more than 4,700 pharmacies across the country. Customers can walk-in to receive a variety of immunizations from COVID-19 to flu to any of the others offered.

Walmart stores located in areas heavily impacted by Hurricane Ida may have limited supplies for Wellness Day this Saturday. It is recommended that customers call ahead to confirm which vaccines and services are available at your local Walmart. The list of participating stores can be found at

Insurance is not required to receive a COVID-19 vaccination, which is available at no cost, and other vaccines are covered under most major insurance plans.

During this free, one-day event, families can get all the below in one easy location:

  • Flu shots and no-cost COVID-19 vaccines
  • Affordable immunizations, including measles, mumps, rubella (MMR), varicella (chicken pox), HPV, tetanus, whooping cough (TDAP) and more at pharmacies nationwide
  • Wellness resources + opportunity to talk with pharmacists
