Sixteen Walmart stores will now become COVID-19 vaccination sites in the Birmingham-Metropolitan area. 

The retailer began distributing up to 14,000 doses of the COVID-19 vaccines directly from the federal government last week across the state. Stores in the Birmingham area initially were not among locations listed.

That changed after Birmingham City Councilor Hunter Williams, chair of the council’s public safety committee, met with Walmart.

Williams presented Walmart executives with data from the Jefferson County Department of Health’s COVID dashboard, showing Birmingham’s infection rate compared to other Alabama cities.  

“Walmart is a name brand recognized in almost every American household,” Williams said. “They are doing everything that they can to maximize their ability to get vaccines to underserved areas . . . I cannot stress how thankful I am that Walmart was willing to come to the table and recognize the importance of making sure there are locations in the Birmingham metro area to serve our residents.”

Currently there are three vaccination sites in the Birmingham metro area — A.H. Parker High School, the Hoover Met and UAB-Highlands Hospital.
