How to schedule at pharmacies

Vaccination clinics at pharmacies participating in the federal vaccine program appear on Indiana's vaccine clinic map, but you need to register through the store's systems rather than the state's system.

In Indiana, pharmacies at CVS, Kroger, Meijer, Sam's Club, Walmart and Walgreens currently offer the vaccines.
