GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - Grocery stores across the country are stepping up and opening their pharmacies for vaccine distribution.

One of those is in our area and will be getting vaccines soon.

Harris Teeter is among many grocery stores that will be giving out COVID-19 vaccines to people who are eligible.

Some Harris Teeter stores in South Carolina have already started the distribution process. Our state is soon to come.

According to Harris Teeter, pharmacies have been approved for a limited, COVID-19 vaccine distribution for eligible individuals.

The vaccine will be given out based on availability at all 211, Harris Teeter Pharmacy locations.

Only people who are eligible are able to make an appointment and get the vaccine once it arrives.

We don’t know exactly when the no-cost vaccines will be at Harris Teeter pharmacies. When they are, distribution will be by appointment only.

Harris Teeter says they will play an active role in helping give the vaccine out and will keep in contact with public health officials and community partners.

Individuals with an appointment will need to provide a valid driver’s license or government-issued identification card when they get their vaccine.

Harris Teeter says even though there’s no cost for the vaccine, patients with health insurance should bring their insurance card to their appointment.
