Meijer Will Be Now Administering COVID-19 Vaccines
Meijer has just teamed up with the state of Michigan to become a new location for COVID-19 vaccinations. Meijer has 120 stores in Michigan and each one comes with its own pharmacy so it makes perfect sense for the state to partner with Meijer.
Meijer President & CEO Rick Keyes said. “We are proud to be chosen by the State of Michigan as a partner to help administer these critical vaccines and we look forward to our expanded role in helping communities throughout the Midwest defeat this pandemic.”
Meijer has shown constant support for local communities since the beginning of this pandemic. From dedicating certain store hours to the elderly and those more vulnerable to COVID-19 to even giving out discounts to teachers, Meijer can do no wrong in my eyes.
Governor Gretchen Whitmer spoke on the recent partnership with Meijer.
One of the most important things all Michiganders can do right now is to make a plan to get the vaccine when it becomes available to you. Remember, it will take some time to distribute the vaccine to all Michiganders, so please be patient.
This is great news! More locations mean we can vaccinate faster, thus getting back to normal life again.
