Kroger Offers Walk-In Vaccine Opportunities

(Indianapolis, IN.) – May 13, 2021 — Kroger Health, the healthcare division of The Kroger Co. (NYSE: KR), announced the company is offering walk-in Covid-19 vaccinations at most of its Indiana locations. The company encourages all eligible Hoosiers to receive the vaccine at their earliest convenience to help stop the spread of Covid-19.

Kroger Health is offering all three vaccines currently available under the FDA’s Emergency Use Authorization free of charge. Availability by store location varies.

The ability to schedule Covid-19 vaccinations will remain available on the company’s website at kroger.com/covidvaccine. Those who schedule online will also be able to select the vaccine they would like to receive based on availability at the store location.

Walk-in vaccine patients are encouraged to wear a short-sleeved shirt, bring their insurance information and identification card where applicable, and are reminded they will need to be observed in a designated waiting area for 15 minutes following administration of their dose. For Pfizer and Moderna vaccinations, the appointment will be made for the required second dose when the first dose is administered. Minors ages 12-17 will require a parent or guardian to be present during vaccine administration at which time the pharmacist or technician will review their consent form.
