Walmart seeks to get communities to be healthy on its Wellness Day – which falls on  April 23 – as customers can receive free glucose, cholesterol, BMI and blood pressure screenings as well as COVID-19 vaccines and affordable immunizations like shingles, pneumonia, tetanus, hepatitis, HPV and flu at pharmacies nationwide.

The goal of Walmart Wellness Day is to encourage customers to get healthy and stay on a healthy track by helping them know their numbers and then seek care to improve their lifestyles. Knowing your numbers is just a start but armed with that information you can make decisions and track your health improvement. Walmart is also supporting the American Heart Association’s® efforts to educate and inspire customers to check their blood pressure through the ‘Reclaim Your Rhythm’ campaign.

More than 4,600 Walmart pharmacies across the country hosted Walmart Wellness Day events from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. local time on April 23. Select stores also featured vision screenings to make it even easier for customers to access the resources they need.

Walmart Wellness Day events featured several health resources, administered by qualified pharmacy and Vision Center teams.

Walmart offered free health screenings, including glucose, cholesterol, blood pressure, body mass index and vision screenings.

It also offered affordable immunizations, including pneumonia, tetanus, HPV, flu, measles, mumps, rubella (MMR), varicella (chicken pox/shingles), whooping cough (TDAP), Hep A & B and more.

It also offered no-cost COVID-19 vaccines as well as wellness resources and the opportunity to talk with pharmacists.

“We’re proud to help our communities live better and healthier by providing free health screenings during Walmart Wellness Day. We know healthcare is local, and we take a community-by-community approach to providing needed health care services,” said Kevin Host, Walmart’s senior vice president of pharmacy. “We want to transform healthcare delivery in the United States; by using all of our existing assets together – from fresh food, to pharmacies, to telehealth, to health centers – we are able to care for our customers when and where they need care, in the way that works best for them.”
