COVID-19 booster shots available at local food stores

Pfizer COVID-19 booster vaccinations are now available in most Giant and Martin’s in-store pharmacies to those who are currently eligible. No appointment is needed; walk-ins are welcome. To save time, customers can make an appointment online at giantfoodstores.com/pages/tgc-vaccines or martinsfoods.com/pages/tgc-vaccines. Customers must bring a photo ID and prescription insurance card, if available. The booster will be administered at no out-of-pocket cost.

Initial doses of Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines are available at Giant and Martin’s pharmacies to adults 18 and older. COVID-19 vaccine type may vary by location. Pharmacies offering the Pfizer vaccine can administer to teens ages 12-17. Parental consent is required, and parent/guardian must be on site.

In addition, customers can visit any in-store pharmacy to receive a flu vaccination. Flu and COVID-19 vaccines can be given together.
