TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — The number of outlets to receive a vaccine for COVID-19 expanded Wednesday when Indiana State Health Commissioner Dr. Kristina Box announced during Governor Eric Holcomb’s weekly coronavirus update that Meijer, Kroger and Walmart will begin offering vaccine appointments in Indiana to eligible residents. 

Appointments at Meijer and Kroger cannot be made by calling 211, but by visiting their websites listed below. Walmart will use the state’s system; appointments can be scheduled through visiting OurShot.In.Gov or calling 211.

Walmart has two Terre Haute locations — the one at 2399 S. State Road 46 will be offering the vaccine. As yet, the Walmart at 5555 S. US Highway 41 has not been officially added to the list of locations dispensing the vaccine.
