Officials with Meijer announced Friday that individuals wishing to receive the COVID-19 vaccine could register to do so by sending a text message.

According to Meijer, all you have to do is text “COVID” to 75049 to register for the vaccine and receive updates directly to your phone. Then, when vaccines become available at the pharmacies, Meijer will text you an invite link with available vaccination dates and times.

In response to the invitation, Meijer says you'll need to issue one of the following responses:

  • "I Accept": Meijer will reserve a vaccine for you.
  • "I Defer": I cannot attend this clinic but keep me on the list for future clinic offers.
  • "Remove Me": I am no longer interested or received the vaccine elsewhere.

After you receive the first shot, you’ll automatically be invited back to a second clinic to get the second dose.

Vaccines will be prioritized based on state and national guidelines as they become available and Meijer Pharmacy locations will receive the vaccine at different times based on what public health officials decide for the needs of our communities.

Meijer operates 256 locations throughout Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, and Wisconsin. Click here to find a location near you. You can also register to receive the COVID-19 vaccine at Meijer online.
