Smith’s Pharmacies in Wyoming to provide COVID-19 Vaccine
Smith’s Food & Drug, a division of The Kroger Co., announces that it has obtained a supply of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine and will begin administering inoculations to Wyoming residents at Smith’s Pharmacies starting on March 23, 2021.
As part of Wyoming’s COVID-19 vaccine distribution timeline, eligibility is determined by each county. Smith’s customers are encouraged to visit: https://www.smithsfoodanddrug.com/rx/covid-eligibility and answer screening questions which will let them know if they are eligible at this time to receive the vaccine.
Smith’s is following the CDC’s phased distribution schedule for administering the COVID-19 vaccine and will strictly follow guidelines from the state/local health department on their vaccine distribution plan. For more information on if you qualify, visit: http://www.health.wyo.gov .
"Individuals interested in receiving the vaccine can expect their appointment to be as fast and simple as getting an annual flu shot—reserve an appointment online, receive your vaccination from a licensed healthcare professional and wait 15-30 minutes after receiving the vaccine to ensure the absence of any side effects,” said Jaime Montuoro, Smith’s Pharmacy Director.
With seven pharmacies throughout Wyoming, Smith’s presence in local communities provides the unique ability to efficiently administer the vaccine. It is anticipated that Smith’s will expand the vaccine distribution to the general public as government directives make the vaccine available to additional groups.
