Walmart Canada has administered its first-ever COVID-19 vaccine at its Red Deer, Alta. store and plans to offer the vaccine at more Walmart pharmacies across the country.
Walmart's Red Deer pharmacy was selected to participate in the first stage of the Alberta goverment's Pharmacy Immunization program. Walmart has been in discussions with key pharmacy stakeholders to distribute the vaccine.
The company has increased refrigeration capacity at its pharmacies with the purchase of multiple ultra-cold freezers to assist with the storage and handling of some of the vaccine formulas.
