In the just over two weeks since the Federal Retail Pharmacy Program launched, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services announces that certain Kroger stores will start to receive COVID-19 vaccine this week. Kroger joins Walgreens as pharmacy participants in the program to help provide a broader reach into communities in need of vaccine. In Wisconsin, Kroger includes the following Roundy’s grocery stores: Metro Market and Pick-n-Save.
“We are excited to continue to expand Wisconsin’s vaccine infrastructure and provide more access to vaccine by adding another pharmacy partner to this critical program,” said DHS Interim Secretary Karen Timberlake. “While the amount of vaccine in Wisconsin is increasing, it is still not enough to meet demand. Please continue to be patient, and follow good public health practices like wearing a mask and staying home, while we work with vaccinators across the state to get shots in arms.”
