TYLER, TX — Brookshire Grocery Company pharmacies will offer free COVID-19 vaccines when approved and available for distribution.

The company has partnered with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and is actively preparing for the distribution of a vaccine once it is available.

The vaccine will be available to the public at no cost to the patient.

“Our company is committed to supporting our communities and providing for our customers’ daily and essential needs,” said Brad Brookshire, Chairman and CEO for Brookshire Grocery Co. “We are proud to participate in the plan to increase access to COVID-19 vaccines to best serve our communities. Our pharmacy team is actively enrolling with each state in order to be ready to safely administer vaccines when available. We care about our neighbors and are committed to doing what we can to lessen the impact of COVID-19.”

Once a vaccine is available, pharmacy staff will undergo the necessary training. The company will share available update and information regarding timing and distribution once the process moves forward.
