PHILADELPHIA, PA — With the FDA and CDC authorization of the Pfizer vaccine for adolescents 12 – 15 years old, Walmart and Sam’s Club has announced their pharmacists are administering vaccines to all eligible patients where Pfizer is offered.
“The Pfizer vaccine is 95% effective in all ages — even better for those age 12-15 — at preventing symptomatic COVID-19,” writes Dr. Chinni Pulluru, Senior Director, Clinical Innovation, Transformation and Operations, Walmart.
“That means for every vaccinated adolescent, their risk of severe COVID-19 decreases — making it easier for schools to safely resume in-person teaching, creating the possibility for safe summer camps and outdoor extracurricular activities and giving parents one less thing to worry about.
“To put it another way: Expanded vaccine eligibility gets our country one step closer to safely and fully reopening.
“At Walmart, we want to make it as easy as possible for all eligible customers to get vaccinated against COVID-19, no matter their age.”
