Walmart invites communities to get healthy ahead of a new school year at Walmart Wellness Day 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, July 23.

Customers can receive free glucose, cholesterol, BMI and blood pressure screenings as well as affordable immunizations like tetanus, hepatitis, HPV, COVID-19 and more at pharmacies nationwide, according to a release.

Walmart Wellness Day encourages families to get healthy and stay on a healthy track by helping them know their numbers and then seek care to improve their healthy lifestyles. Knowing your numbers is just a start but additional, helpful information allows you to make decisions and track your health improvement. Walmart Wellness Day is also a great time for customers to learn about our health and wellness offerings and solutions.

More than 4,600 Walmart pharmacies across the country will host Walmart Wellness Day events. Select stores will also feature vision screenings to make it even easier for customers to access the resources they need.

Walmart Wellness Day events will feature the following health resources, administered by qualified pharmacy and Vision Center teams:

  • Free health screenings, including glucose, cholesterol, blood pressure, body mass index and vision screenings (select locations)
  • Affordable immunizations, including pneumonia, tetanus, HPV, measles, mumps, rubella (MMR), varicella (chicken pox/shingles), whooping cough (TDAP), Hep A & B and more
  • No cost to patient COVID-19 vaccines
  • Wellness resources plus opportunity to talk with pharmacists

“An exciting time of the year is approaching fast, and we look forward to offering these health and wellness resources for families as they gear up for school,” Kevin Host, Walmart’s senior vice president of pharmacy, said in the release. “Wellness Day allows us to continue helping our communities live better and healthier through free screenings, affordable immunizations and other solutions. The back-to-school season is a busy one, and these are ways we hope to provide some easy, convenient options for our customers. Healthcare delivery is something we’re always innovating through not just our pharmacies but also through Walmart Health Virtual Care and Walmart Health Centers. Our goal is to offer care for our customers when and where they need it.”

Since 2014, Walmart pharmacies have hosted Walmart Wellness Days, contributing more than 4.7 million free health screenings for customers. To find a free event in your neighborhood, go to Walmart.com/wellnesshub.
