Giant Food announced March 31 that all 152 of its in-store pharmacies throughout Delaware, Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia are offering the COVID-19 vaccine to eligible residents.
Since late 2020, Giant has been administering vaccinations and is continuing to work closely with local and federal authorities to receive additional doses on an ongoing basis. Giant’s pharmacies are currently utilizing the Moderna, Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson vaccines, dependent on specific location.
Giant’s licensed in-store pharmacists began administering COVID-19 vaccinations in Washington, D.C., in December, Maryland and Delaware in January, and Virginia in February.
This expansion of availability of supplies to all Giant pharmacies will increase access to the vaccine for eligible residents and future groups in addition to furthering vaccination progress throughout the region.
“We’re extremely proud of all of our Giant pharmacy teams across our stores for their commitment to serving the public and doing their part to help our communities get vaccinated,” said Paul Zvaleny, director of pharmacy operations at Giant Food. “We’re honored to have the privilege of now being able to offer the vaccine at all 152 of our pharmacy locations to further assist in efforts to help our communities recover from the pandemic.”
To check for eligibility and schedule first-dose appointments, go to giantfood.com/covid-info. If either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine is administered, the pharmacy staff will schedule second-dose appointments at the time of the patient's first dose. Vaccines are provided at no cost, though residents are asked to bring their health insurance card and driver’s license to their appointment.
