AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - Kroger has become the latest company to offer walk-in COVID-19 vaccinations.

They’ll be offered at most of Kroger pharmacy locations in Georgia and South Carolina, the company said.

The company is encouraging all those eligible to receive the vaccine and to do so at their earliest convenience to help stop the spread of COVID-19.

Kroger Health is offering all three COVID-19 vaccines currently available, although availability by store location varies.

You can still schedule vaccinations at Kroger.com/CovidVaccine. Those who schedule online will also be able to select which vaccine they would like to receive based on availability by store location.

Walk-in vaccine patients are encouraged to wear a short-sleeve shirt, bring their insurance information and identification card where applicable, and are reminded they will need to be observed in a designated waiting area for 15 minutes following administration of their dose.

For Pfizer and Moderna vaccinations, the appointment will be made for the required second dose when the first dose is administered. Minors ages 16-17 who are eligible to receive the Pfizer vaccine do not need to have their guardian present at the time of vaccine administration, however, the pharmacist or technician is required to call to verify consent from the guardian.

Earlier this week, Publix announced it would be offering walk-in vaccinations.
