America is on a roll when it comes to COVID-19 vaccinations.

As of May 10, nearly 153 million Americans had received at least one dose of the vaccine, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That is 46% of the population.

Millions more hope to join them soon. The good news for these folks is that many pharmacies now are offering same-day or walk-in appointments.

Following are some pharmacies touting this convenience. Before showing up at one of these pharmacies, call ahead to make sure they have vaccines available.

  1. CVS: Walk-in vaccinations are now available, although they are subject to vaccine availability.
  2. H-E-B Pharmacy: Walk-in vaccinations are available Monday through Friday from 3-5 p.m.
  3. HyVee: You can get vaccinated at any HyVee pharmacy with “no appointment necessary.”
  4. Meijer: Walk-in appointments are available. However, there is limited availability of the COVID-19 vaccine available at every store.
  5. Publix: Walk-in vaccinations are being accepted, subject to vaccine availability.
  6. Rite Aid: Walk-in appointments are available “on a limited basis in every store.”
  7. Sam’s Club: Walk-in vaccine appointments are being accepted at locations nationwide, as supply allows.
