Walmart Canada says it’s making it easier and more convenient to get vaccinated with the flu shot. With its new online scheduler available, customers can get both flu and COVID-19 vaccines at the same time, as well as rapid antigen asymptomatic COVID-19 testing which is now available at various locations across the country.
Customers across the country can use Walmart Canada's online scheduler to book their vaccination appointments, subject to vaccine availability. Customers can sign up online to be notified (via text message) when appointments are available at their local Walmart pharmacy.
Certified Walmart pharmacists will be available to administer flu and COVID-19 vaccines to adults (including seniors) as well as children (subject to applicable age restrictions) at any one of Walmart's more than 300 corporate pharmacies nationwide and 68 Accès Pharma chez Walmart franchise locations in Quebec.
The company has also recently rolled out rapid antigen asymptomatic COVID-19 testing in all Walmart pharmacies in Ontario and Alberta, subject to test kit availability. Walmart pharmacists have administered over 500,000 COVID-19 vaccinations to date.
