Vaccine supply and eligibility will vary based on state and local guidelines, Walmart said.

Digital reminders will be sent for those who make appointments, including reminders for second-dose appointments. You do not have to be a member of Sam’s Club to sign-up for an appointment. Appointments are available seven days a week, but the timing will vary based on the availability of the vaccine.
