Vaccine distribution options increase with Kroger, Meijer providing shots

Vaccine Information 1

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA21) - Several of the region's biggest retailers and grocers have started to provide COVID-19 vaccinations, greatly increasing the reach of the effort to get those shots to the public.

Kroger stores are among the latest to join in Indiana. The company said an increase in the supply of the vaccine has allowed for distribution to its pharmacies.

The state's qualifications -- currently, age 65 and older -- remain in effect. Healthcare workers and first responders are also qualified.

There is no out-of-pocket cost, but stores will record insurance information to help cover the costs of distribution, storage and administration of the vaccine.

There are 113 Kroger pharmacies in Indiana. The company is also offering vaccinations at many of its Ohio stores.

Meijer stores are also rolling out the Moderna vaccine.

Information and registration forms can be found on the company's dedicated web page.

Earlier this week, Walmart announced that some of its Indiana stores would begin offering vaccination.

A check of the map shows that most of the locations in 21Country are not among the initial group offering shots.

That is expected to change as the company expands its vaccine distribution effort.
