No appointments needed for vaccine shots at Safeway, Albertsons

Walk-in customers welcome at pharmacies

Safeway and Albertsons pharmacies across Washington state are now welcoming walk-in COVID-19 vaccinations.

People can go directly to the in-store pharmacy at their neighborhood Safeway or Albertsons and ask for the vaccine without needing an appointment.

Which vaccine is available?

Safeway and Albertsons pharmacies are currently offering the Pfizer, Moderna and the J&J vaccines.

Patients are encouraged to ask their pharmacist which vaccine is available, as it will vary per store location. If the pharmacy location is not administering the patient’s requested vaccine, our pharmacists will work with the patient and direct them to a location that is administering their preferred vaccine.

What if I only need my second dose?

Those needing a second dose of vaccine can contact their local pharmacy, which can either assist them immediately or help them schedule an appointment at a pharmacy with the same vaccine as their first dose. Even if the recommended time between both doses has lapsed, it is still advisable and very beneficial for the people to receive their second dose. Patients must bring their vaccine card to their second dose appointment.

Can I still schedule an appointment?

Scheduled appointments at Safeway and Albertsons are also an option and people can go to mhealthcheckin.com to book an appointment. A second appointment will automatically be schedule for the patient’s second dose of the vaccine.

All patients who receive their vaccine at a Safeway or Albertsons pharmacy will receive a coupon for 10% off their groceries at each appointment.
