One of the largest and known stores Kroger announced for Covid-19 vaccine. In this regard, the company, Kroger Health says it has received doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, and will begin administering the injections at two pharmacies in western Kentucky. They will be taking appointments once they will setup the consulting room.
Back on February 11, Governor Andy Becher announced that Kroger Pharmacies are at 3141 Park Ave. In Paducah and 808 N 12th St. In Murray it will administer the COVID-19 vaccine as part of a partnership with the federal government. While, the Governor also announced that announces 156 new COVID-19 vaccine sites in Kentucky. As of Monday, those stores had not yet provided shots, as their expected shipments had been delayed due to the winter weather.
However, Kroger Health announced Tuesday that it has received a limited supply of doses through its partnership with Kentucky. They will start the appointments shortly as we mentioned above about it.
Here’s what the official statement from the Kroger Health “We appreciate this collaboration with Kentucky as we continue to work to vaccinate Kentucky residents against COVID-19,” Cindy Fischer, head of health and wellness at the Kroger Delta said in a statement. “We strongly encourage all customers and associates to receive the vaccine to limit the spread of COVID-19 in our communities.”
Fisher also noted that the company has announced a “one-time payment of $ 100 to all employees who receive the manufacturer’s recommended full doses as they become available to them through appropriate phase guidelines.” Regarding COVID-19 vaccination dates, Kroger Health reminds the public that Kentucky is still in Phase 1B of its vaccination plan this week, which includes people age 70 or older, K-12 teachers, childcare workers, and first responders.
