LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Kroger Health announced on Wednesday it has received a limited supply of the COVID-19 vaccine and will begin administering the vaccine in 45 of its Indiana pharmacies. The distribution of the vaccine will follow the guidelines set forth by the Indiana Department of Health.
In Tippecanoe County, these Pay Less stores will administer the vaccine:
- 65 Beck Lane, Lafayette
- 2513 Maple Point Dr., Lafayette
- 2200 Greenbush St., Lafayette

“We are strongly encouraging all customers and associates to receive the vaccine to curb the spread of COVID-19 in our communities, and we’ll do all we can to ensure they have access as soon as it’s available,” said Greg Fox, health and wellness director for Kroger Central Division in Indianapolis.
According to a press release, Kroger will support the phased approach, following the age eligibility guidelines set by the Indiana Department of Health, focusing first on priority populations as defined by federal and state governments. At this time, Indiana’s plan offers vaccinations to any Hoosier age 70 and older, long-term care residents, first responders (fire, law enforcement, emergency medical services, reservists and volunteers) who have in-person contact with the public and licensed and unlicensed healthcare workers who have in-person contact with patients or infectious material in any healthcare setting.
If you fall within the eligibility, appointments can be scheduled by going to www.kroger.com/covidvaccine to receive the first dose of the two-dose vaccine.
Other counties were Kroger will offer the vaccines are:
