BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Publix is no longer the only game in town when it comes to COVID-19 vaccines. Walmart, Winn-Dixie and Sam’s Club are now joining the mix.

But in typical Florida fashion, you have to make an appointment for each location — there is no central clearinghouse for COVID-19 shots at stores. So while you’re anxiously trying to book an appointment online at Publix on Wednesday and Friday mornings, you can also open a browser to see what is happening at Walmart, Sam’s Club and Winn-Dixie.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis Tuesday announced the additional retail locations.

“Florida is proud to partner with Walmart and other retailers, including Publix, to expand access to the COVID-19 vaccine,” said Governor DeSantis at an event in Jacksonville.“Through the Federal Retail Pharmacy Program, we look forward to reaching more Floridians and ensuring that all eligible residents who want a vaccine are able to receive one. We will continue to utilize strategic partnerships and identify innovative ways to get more shots in arms and put Florida’s Seniors First.” 

Here is the appointment reservation information for each retail chain:
