INDIANAPOLIS — Eligible Hoosiers now have another option when it comes to getting the COVID-19 vaccine. Kroger is now offering the shot in all 113 of their pharmacies across the state as part of a federal effort to get more shots in arms.
Kroger says receiving does of the vaccine from the federal government will allow them to vaccinate 100 people per week at each pharmacy location. This is another option Hoosiers can consider if they are unable to make an appointment through the state’s website or by calling 211.
On Thursday, several Kroger stores in the Indianapolis area had same-day appointments available for people to schedule online.
“I'll sign up whoever's got it closest to me as soon as I can,” said one customer in the Kroger parking lot on Thursday.
Many were happy to learn there were more vaccination locations being added in our area and they say convenience will play a role in where they choose to get their shot.
“It is great if Kroger does it because it is the one place that I go about every other day, is the grocery store. Why drive over 17 different places when you can go to just one, so yeah this is a good way to do it,” said another customer in the parking lot on Thursday.
In order to get a COVID-19 shot at Kroger, you must still meet state guidelines. They will only accept appointments right now for people who are 65 and older, a healthcare professional or first responder.
