Because we have low prices, every day, on everything, that means you get the peace of mind of protecting your family at affordable prices.
Types of immunizations available
In addition to the annual flu shot you and your family should get, we also provide all the immunizations recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This list is for patients who are age 8 or older at most of our locations. This includes immunizations required by local school districts as long as they're allowed under state law. For adults, some of the immunizations we offer include:
Influenza Recommended to be given once per year; includes three-strain (Trivalent), four-strain (Quadrivalent) and Fluzone high dose
Td/Tdap (tetanus/diphtheria/pertussis) A Td booster should be given once every 10 years, along with a dosage of Tdap; women should receive a Tdap (whooping cough) vaccine during any pregnancies to help protect their baby
Shingles Should be given to an adult after age 60 even if he or she has already had shingles before; women who are pregnant or people with weakened immune systems or have an HIV CD4 count of less than 200 should not get this shot
Pneumococcal Adults should receive one dosage of PVC13 and at least one dosage of PPSV23, dependent on age and health condition; recommended for men and women age 65 and older
MMR (measles/mumps/rubella) A vaccine that you should get if you're a woman up to age 26 or a man up to age 21 and have not already received this vaccine series as a child; women who are pregnant or people with weakened immune systems or have an HIV CD4 count of less than 200 should not get this shot
HPV (human papillomavirus) A vaccine that you should get if you're a woman up to age 26 or a man up to age 21 and have not already received this vaccine series as a child
Chickenpox A vaccine that you should get if you did not receive it as a child; women who are pregnant or people with weakened immune systems or have an HIV CD4 count of less than 200 should not get this shot
Hepatitis A and Hepatitis B Vaccines that you should consider getting if you did not receive them as a child
HIB (haemophilus influenzae, type B), Meningococcal and Varicella These are separate vaccines that may be necessary if you have certain risk factors based on your age and health condition and if your physician recommends it
If you plan to travel outside of the United States, you may need vaccinations to protect you while abroad. These should be completed at least six weeks before you begin your travels. Check with your pharmacist if you need additional information.
Insurance and payment
Walmart accepts some insurance plans, so you'll want to check with a Walmart pharmacist. For example, most insurance plans make it so that eligible patients don't have any out-of-pocket expense, or $0 co-payment, for flu shots. When it comes time to pay, besides insurance plans, we accept cash, Walmart credit card, American Express, Discover, MasterCard, Visa and Medicare. Depending on your location, we can also accept Medicaid.
All Walmart certified pharmacists are trained to give immunizations. They each have completed an immunization training program that's endorsed by the CDC, American Pharmacists Association or the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education. Keep in mind that, because of certain state regulations on pharmacist-administered immunizations, this service may not be available at all locations.
If you wish to save some time, you can visit our website and complete our vaccine consent forms in advance. Just print out the form, fill it out and bring it in with you when you come in for your immunization. If you live in California, New Jersey or South Carolina, there's a specific form for you to fill out. If you live anywhere else in the United States, you can use a form that works for all other states.
