“The summer season brings backyard barbecues, camping trips and family vacations – Wellness Day helps people get a healthy start on those adventures,” said Kevin Host, Walmart’s Senior Vice President of Pharmacy. “It’s not only the free screenings and the affordable immunizations that make a difference but also the opportunity for connections between our pharmacists and the communities we serve. We deliver impactful care through our pharmacies, Vision Centers, Walmart Health Centers and beyond. We’ll continue to innovate and execute on a best-in-class health and wellness experience for our patients and customers.”

Since 2014, Walmart pharmacies have hosted Walmart Wellness Days, contributing more than 5 million free health screenings for customers. More than 4,000 Walmart stores are in medically underserved areas, which means Walmart is often the first stop for health care in these rural and underserved communities.
