Another big grocery chain has joined in COVID-19 vaccination efforts here in Orlando. Walmart will begin vaccinating local residents 65 years of age and older at 17 locations in Orange County — starting Friday.

During the weekly COVID-19 briefing on Monday, Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings confirmed that select Orange County Walmart and Sam's Club stores would be participating in this Biden administration's U.S. Federal Retail Pharmacy Program to administer the COVID-19 vaccines in-store.



Participating Walmart pharmacies will theoretically have the capacity to vaccinate 300 people per day, according to Demings. Walmart joins Florida grocers Winn-Dixie and Public in this rollout.

Walmart has not confirmed the locations as of this writing, but Orange County officials provided the Orlando Sentinel with a working list of the 17 local locations.
