“Ninety percent of the country lives within ten miles of a Walmart. We’re committed to helping people live better – and healthier lives – in Nevada, and we take that role very seriously,” said Dr. Cheryl Pegus, Executive Vice President, Health & Wellness. “We want to help the country re-open, but we can only achieve that through widespread COVID-19 vaccination. We’re proud to work together with the federal government, states, communities, customers and associates to expand access to the vaccine and reach that goal.”
“As we continue the largest and most complex vaccination rollout in our nation’s history, I am glad the State of Nevada will work collaboratively with the federal government, Walmart and Sam’s Club pharmacies to administer COVID-19 vaccines as quickly as our federal allocation allows,” said Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak. “This program will help provide convenient, community-based locations for Nevadans to access the vaccine.”
