Mariano's COVID Vaccine Registration Details and How to Book an Appointment

Mariano's, a chain of grocery stores owned by the supermarket company Kroger, is offering COVID-19 vaccinations at select locations. Those eligible for vaccination can register by booking an appointment on the Mariano's website.

The company said: "Our family of pharmacies has received a limited supply of the COVID-19 vaccine in select areas and our licensed health care professionals are partnering with federal and state agencies to administer the doses in accordance with each jurisdiction's rollout plans.

"The COVID-19 vaccine is not available at Little Clinic locations at this time."

The Mariano's COVID-19 vaccine page "will be regularly updated with information on vaccine availability and eligibility by state. Please check back often for new locations and updated eligibility criteria," the company added.

For its store in Houston, Texas, for example, the page currently advises: "Our pharmacies have administered all doses that have been made available to us at this time. Please check back for updates."
