FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — Publix pharmacies are now accepting walk-ins for the COVID-19 vaccine at all of their locations across seven states.
The Lakeland-based supermarket chain said on its website that customers have the choice of the two-dose Moderna vaccine, or the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine, subject to availability.
The website still offers appointments as well.
Publix had already been offering walk-in availability at stores in Alabama, North Carolina and Tennessee.
The notice that walk-ins are also welcome at stores in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and Virginia comes about a week after President Joe Biden issued a federal mandate that requires pharmacies in the federal retail pharmacy program to offer walk-in vaccinations.
