The state of Florida has alerted leaders in Orange County that select Walmart stores in the area will receive COVID-19 vaccines through a CDC partnership. Seventeen Walmart stores in Orange County will receive the vaccines through the Biden administration’s Federal Retail Pharmacy Program. Each store will be able to vaccinate some 300 people per day. Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings said these new vaccine sites will make it easier to obtain herd immunity. “So it’s all of those types of community partners as they come online will increase the inventory of vaccine within our community. And you know the Walmarts, these are going to be kind of local neighborhood types of Walmarts where these locations will be.” Audio Player 00:00 00:00 Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.

About 6,485 COVID-19 shots have already been distributed at retail pharmacies in Orange County.
