Date:8/23/2012

BENTONVILLE, Ark., Aug. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Walmart announced today the launch of expanded immunizations in more than 2,700 Walmart stores. In collaboration with Mollen Immunization Clinics, ten of the CDC-recommended immunizations will be offered, including vaccinations for shingles and whooping cough, at events taking place from Aug. 27 through Nov. 15. The flu vaccine and pneumonia vaccine will also be available at events in more than 3,800 Walmart store locations with a pharmacy.

Walmart is the first national retailer to use registered nurses to administer in-store vaccinations across all store locations. By using Mollen Immunization Clinics' nurse network, Walmart will offer immunizations to anyone three years and older based on CDC and FDA guidelines. Walmart is also partnering with Mollen to provide free blood pressure screenings at all immunization events in Walmart stores on Sept. 8, 15, 22 and 29.

"According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, many adults are not up-to-date with recommended life-saving immunizations. Vaccinations may not be top-of-mind while the weather is still warm, but they are a critical part of public health, especially in light of recent outbreaks of whooping cough and shingles," said John Agwunobi, M.D., president of Walmart U.S. Health and Wellness. "We are making it easy and affordable for our customers to receive their vaccinations – while on their normal shopping trips they can simply stop by immunization events, which will accept thousands of insurance plans and offer low price options for our cash paying customers."
