Flu shots now available at Walmart, Sam's Club

BENTONVILLE, Ark. — Walmart and Sam's Club are offering flu shots clinics to customers through their partnership with Mollen Immunization Clinics.

The clinics, located in more than 4,100 select stores and clubs nationwide, will offer flu shots for $25. Medicare Part B or private health plans may cover part or all of the cost of the immunization, Walmart and Sam's Club noted. Additionally, Mollen is expanding its immunization menu to also include vaccines for pneumonia, Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria pertussis), MMR (measles, mumps, rubella), meningitis, HPV (human papilloma virus) and hepatitis A and B. The decision was based on changing state regulations that require mandates around these immunizations for both children and adults.

"Providing flu shots in our stores is another way Walmart helps deliver access to affordable healthcare solutions to our customers," Walmart health-and-wellness division president John Agwunobi said.

Customers can visit Walmart.com/flushots or SamsClub.com/healthyliving to find specific dates, times and locations for the flu vaccination clinics.
