Albertsons Companies now offering all available COVID-19 booster doses for free* to eligible customers nationwide
BOISE, ID — October 22, 2021 — Albertsons Companies announced today that the company’s more than 1,700 pharmacies are now offering a booster dose of all available COVID-19 vaccines – including Moderna, Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) and Pfizer-BioNTech – to those who meet eligibility guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Per the CDC, eligible patients can receive any of the three currently available COVID-19 booster doses following completion of any primary series of COVID-19 vaccination, even if the brand of the primary vaccine and booster dose are different.
Moderna & Pfizer-BioNTech
A single booster dose of any COVID-19 vaccine may be administered to those that originally received the Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine series at least 6 months after completion of the primary series. The following groups are eligible:
- 65 years of age and older
- 18 through 64 years of age at high risk of severe COVID-19
- 18 through 64 years of age with high risk of institutional or occupational exposure to SARS-CoV-2
Janssen (Johnson and Johnson)
A single booster dose of any COVID-19 vaccine may be administered to those 18 years of age and older that originally received the Janssen (Johnson and Johnson) COVID-19 Vaccine provided it has been at least 2 months since the primary dose.
Eligible customers can receive COVID-19 vaccine and booster shots at any Albertsons Cos. pharmacy. Customers who are unsure about whether they qualify for the booster shot under the new CDC guidelines or who have other questions about COVID-19 vaccinations can visit with our immunization-trained and certified pharmacists at any pharmacy location. Those who prefer to make an appointment can do so at: https://www.albertsons.com/pharmacy/covid-19.html
According to CDC guidance, all COVID-19 vaccines can be safely administered at the same time as the flu shot. The CDC recommends those six months and older should get one dose of flu vaccine every year. Customers who receive any vaccinations at an Albertsons Cos. pharmacy have access to their vaccination information through our free digital vaccine record that can be downloaded and saved to a digital device, making the information available for their personal use anytime, anywhere. Everyone who receives an immunization will also receive a coupon for 10% off their next grocery Albertsons Cos. purchase, up to $200 where permitted by law. Restrictions may apply. To date, Albertsons Cos. pharmacists have administered more than 7.6 million COVID-19 vaccines through its 1,730 pharmacies nationwide including those in Albertsons, Safeway, Vons, Jewel-Osco, Shaw's, Acme, Tom Thumb, Randalls, United Supermarkets, Pavilions, Star Market, Haggen, and Carrs stores.
*Additional dose available to those who qualify per CDC guidance at no out-of-pocket cost to patients. Insurance, if available, billed for administration fee. Availability based on store supply of doses and scheduled appointments.
