NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Walmart is holding a drive-thru vaccine clinic at its Nashville location on Charlotte Pike beginning Feb. 25.

Anyone eligible to receive the vaccine can make an appointment here. Insurance is not required and the vaccine is free.

The vaccination event is happening through the U.S. Federal Retail Pharmacy Program. The event is expected to take place over the next several weeks as allocation allows.

“We have two goals as we administer vaccines: first, to get as many shots in eligible arms as possible so we can start the process of reopening our country, and second, ensuring equitable vaccine access across the communities we serve,” Executive Vice President Health & Wellness Dr. Cheryl Pegus said in a press release. “We will continue finding new ways to increase vaccination access for our customers as we work towards the eventual end of the pandemic.”

Walmart is partnering with CDC and states to quickly administer vaccines to eligible populations in 35 participating states, Puerto Rico and District of Colombia.
