Thousands of Idahoan's have already been vaccinated for COVID-19 and more are on the way. I was so excited to hear that both my mom and ALL of my grandparents received their first round of vaccines over the last week or so.  I'm so ready to have another layer of protection for our community and for my loved ones.

The State of Idaho has now opened up a much more transparent window into doses that are already in the State of Idaho and how many are on the way. With that, we're learning that additional doses of Moderna vaccines are on their way in as soon as this week. The State of Idaho also announced that Walmart and Albertsons have been selected to distribute vaccines.

Now, with these doses on their way in, Walmart has announced that you will be able to grab an appointment online to get your COVID-19 vaccine--once you're eligible of course. As the vaccine phases open up to more and more of the public, it is going to be important that those doses are distributed and that our population isn't bottle necking into limited, small locations.

As you will be able to see from the list of participating Idaho Walmart locations below, the reach is further than just the Treasure Valley which is great news.
