Meijer Inc. plans to start administering COVID-19 vaccines on Monday at a limited number of retail stores in Wayne County.
The state of Michigan has brought in the Walker-based supermarket giant to use its 120 in-store pharmacies to offer customers a two-dose vaccine to protect against the deadly coronavirus.
Although specific stores have not yet been determined, the company said on Wednesday that people over 65 will be able to get the vaccine at a limited number of stores in Wayne County starting Monday.
From there, the program will expand to 256 Meijer supermarkets in Michigan and the rest of the Midwest, Meijer President and CEO Rick Keyes said on Wednesday.
“Our stores and pharmacies have played a very important role in supporting their communities during this difficult time,” Keyes said in a statement. “We are proud to have been selected by the State of Michigan as a partner to help deliver these essential vaccines, and we look forward to our expanded role in helping communities in the Midwest overcome this pandemic.”
Last week, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s administration asked the CDC to allow Meijer, Kroger and other pharmacies to administer vaccines inside nursing homes to help speed up a CVS program and Walgreens operate at the level national for long-term care facilities.
As of Monday, CVS and Walgreens had administered 39,861 first-dose vaccines to residents and nursing home workers out of 245,100 vaccinated Moderna doses allocated to the program, according to state data.
“We asked that (the CDC) move faster through this population by bringing Michigan’s more ready, willing, and capable pharmacies into the program – like Meijer, Kroger, Walmart, Costco and so many others,” said Tricia Foster, the state’s chief operating officer, at a press conference on Capitol Hill Wednesday with Whitmer.
Meijer has launched a text messaging service for registration and appointment scheduling for vaccines. To register, send COVID to number 75049 or register on Meijer website.
