All Michigan Meijer pharmacies are now giving out vaccines to eligible residents.

The regional grocery chain was chosen to be part of the Federal Retail Pharmacy Program, enabling it to directly administer shots.

Meijer will also be administering shots at locations across the Midwest.

“Our stores and pharmacies continue playing an integral role in supporting their communities across the Midwest during this challenging time,” Meijer President & CEO Rick Keyes said in a statement.

To get registered for an appointment, text COVID to the number 75049, and you’ll receive a link. After that step, you’ll be taken through a short screening to determine priority status.

You can also sign up online at clinic.meijer.com.
