Most Kroger stores in Wisconsin will begin distributing the COVID-19 vaccine after receiving their first batch of the vaccine this week.
Vaccines are provided to Kroger by the federal government as part of the Federal Retail Pharmacy Program. The series will receive 2,340 doses of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine next week. The state will give Kruger 1,552 additional doses of the vaccine.
The announcement was made in a press release from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services on Wednesday.
Kroger also owns the retail chain MetroMarket and Pick-n-Save. The announcement does not specify which stores will receive the vaccine.
Anyone currently eligible for the vaccine in Wisconsin can visit the Kroger website or call (866) 211-5320 to make an appointment (if applicable).
Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Karen Timberlake said, “We are delighted to further expand the vaccine infrastructure in Wisconsin and provide greater access to vaccines by adding another pharmaceutical partner to this important program.
