NEW ORLEANS — Walmart will be expanding their services to help with the state's ability to administer covid vaccines.

The store locations in Louisiana include:
- New Iberia
- Port Allen

On Friday Executive Vice President for Health & Wellness Dr. Cheryl Pegus, made a blog about Walmart's initiative and commitment to its customers and communities.
"As we always have, Walmart stands ready to serve our country, our customers and our associates. We appreciate the conversations we have had with both administrations and the ongoing conversations we are having with the new Biden administration. We look forward to the day we can activate our strengths to serve our communities and administer the vaccine," Executive Vice President for Health & Wellness Dr. Cheryl Pegus.
According to the CDC, anyone 65 and older, people aged 16-64-years-old with underlying medical conditions and essential workers are now eligible to receive the shot.
