OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – Oklahomans will be able to get a variety of vaccinations during Walmart’s Wellness Day.

On Saturday, Sept. 25, Walmart will host the free event to provide immunizations and vaccines.

Organizers say insurance is not required to receive a free COVID-19 vaccination, and other vaccines are covered under most major insurance plans.

Families will be able to get the following vaccines:

  • Flu shots
  • No-cost COVID-19 vaccines
  • Affordable immunizations, including measles, mumps, rubella (MMR), varicella (chicken pox), HPV, tetanus, whooping cough (TDAP) and more at pharmacies nationwide.
  • Wellness resources + opportunity to talk with pharmacists.

Flu season begins in September, and health professionals warn this flu season could be very active as COVID-19 continues to spread.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that everyone six months and older receive a flu shot each year.
