Meijer Preparing To Administer High Volume of Covid Booster Shots
Meijer says they are ready to administer COVID-19 booster shots to eligible patients, regardless of where they received their original vaccine series, at their pharmacies across the Midwest.
“We’ve come a long way these past 18 months, but in order to continue on that path and maintain our healthy communities, we encourage everyone who is eligible to get the COVID-19 booster,” said Meijer President and CEO Rick Keyes. “Our pharmacy team worked diligently to vaccinate a very large number of people in a relatively short amount of time and is preparing to administer boosters for those who are eligible to take that next step.”
Meijer states that eligible patients who received their original vaccinations from Meijer, whether in store or at an off-site Meijer clinic, will be sent a text before their timeframe to schedule their booster appointment.
All other patients can text COVID to 75049 to schedule an appointment when eligible or walk into any Meijer pharmacy.
“We know that thousands of people are eligible right now, including those who received their initial vaccine series at clinics that no longer exist, so we want to make it easy for patients to schedule their booster dose when it works for them,” said Meijer Vice President of Pharmacy Jackie Morse. “Regardless of where you received your original vaccination, it’s important to know that our teams are here for you.”
To date, Meijer has administered nearly 1.9 million coronavirus vaccines. They encourage all individuals, including those who are ages 12-17 with a parent or guardian, to get the vaccine at their local Meijer pharmacy.
