TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) – Beginning this week, you can sign up to get a COVID-19 vaccine in 22 states, including Kansas.

Starting on Friday, Walmart pharmacies will begin administering COVID-19 vaccines. Once appointments are available, you can schedule them online via the Walmart website.

Walmart said vaccines will be available to people in Phase 1 and Phase 2 of Kansas’ vaccine plan.

“Ninety percent of the country lives within ten miles of a Walmart. We’re committed to helping people live better – and healthier lives – in Kansas, and we take that role very seriously,” said Dr. Cheryl Pegus, Executive Vice President, Health & Wellness, in a news release. “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.”
