Meijer Pharmacies to administer COVID-19 vaccines in the State of Michigan
14 January 2021 -

Pharmacy Meijer stated on Wednesday that the State of Michigan has selected the Midwest retailer as an initial pharmacy partner to help administer COVID-19 vaccines as well as launched a text-based registration process for those who want to register to receive the vaccine.

The pharmacy will directly receive and administer COVID-19 vaccines under the State of Michigan's Federal Retail Pharmacy Partnership Programme.

In conjunction with the agreement, the pharmacy will administer the first doses of COVID-19 vaccine at a limited number of stores in Wayne County to patients 65 and older beginning the week of 18 January and will expand to include more stores throughout the state.

In addition, the participants who wish to register for the vaccine can also go online to to register. The link will include three brief questions that allow Meijer pharmacies to properly determine which vaccine phase the patient is in.
