Walmart Vaccine FAQ

When I enter my ZIP code in the scheduler, no stores are showing up. Why is this? We are rolling out the vaccine to select stores as they are approved by state and federal governments, and your local stores may not yet have been selected to administer the vaccine. The locations are determined by the state and federal government to administer to specific populations as determined by the state. The availability of vaccines will continue to change, so we appreciate your patience and please continue to check back.

Do I need a doctor’s referal?

No, but you must meet the state’s eligibility guidelines. Check with your state’s department of health to see if you qualify for the vaccine.
