Southeastern Grocers, the parent company of Winn-Dixie, announced Tuesday, March 30, that it would be expanding the number of Alabama pharmacies offering COVID-19 vaccinations to the public.
The company initially announced last week that 12 locations in the state, including Wetumpka and Millbrook, would begin offering COVID-19 vaccines on Wednesday, March 31. The Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) allocated 1,170 doses of the Pfizer vaccine to those 12 Winn-Dixie locations.
But now, the company has said it will have 2,200 Johnson & Johnson vaccines to administer at all of its stores that feature a pharmacy, which translates to 34 stores in 17 counties. Pharmacies are expected to start administering the Johnson & Johnson vaccines on Friday, April 2.
Unlike Pfizer and Moderna, the Johnson & Johnson vaccine is administered in a single dose.
The Millbrook Winn-Dixie is located at 3625 Alabama 14, and the Wetumpka Winn-Dixie is located at 5326 N. U.S. 231.
Those who are vaccine-eligible can schedule an appointment online at the Winn-Dixie website. Appointments will be made on a first-come, first-serve basis, while supplies last.
