Walmart is one of several retailers providing COVID-19 vaccinations to Illinois residents. The company began administering the shots late last month in more than 150 Walmart stores and Sam's Clubs across a dozen states, including Illinois and Indiana.
The company said it eventually expects to be able to deliver 10 to 13 million doses per month nationwide "when supply and allocations allow."
Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker also announced on Jan. 22 that Kroger and Mariano's, which is a subsidiary of the Ohio-based grocery chain, were expected to start giving vaccinations to residents by Feb. 1. Additionally, the supermarket chain Hy-Vee, which has locations in central and western Illinois, will also provide inoculations.
Mariano's is already providing vaccinations, with "limited quantities" available at most locations within the city of Chicago, according to the chain's website.
In late December, Kroger announced plans to provide the COVID-19 vaccine at its 2,200 pharmacies and 220 clinics nationwide.

Illinois entered Phase 1B of its vaccination plan last week, opening up eligibility for the vaccine to residents age 65 years and older and "frontline essential workers" like teachers, grocery workers and more.
