BENTONVILLE, Ark., Jan. 9, 2023 — A new year is here, and Walmart invites communities to start down the path of getting – and staying – healthy at the first Walmart Wellness Day of 2023 on Saturday, Jan. 14 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Customers can receive free health screenings for things like glucose, cholesterol, BMI and blood pressure, as well as affordable immunizations like flu, COVID-19, mumps, measles and more at pharmacies nationwide.

Knowing your health numbers is just a start, but additional information allows people to make decisions and track progress. Walmart Wellness Day is also a great time for customers to learn about our health and wellness offerings and solutions and take advantage of free screenings and affordable immunizations, right in their backyard.
More than 4,600 Walmart pharmacies across the country will host Walmart Wellness Day events from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. local time on Saturday, Jan. 14.
