Walmart will soon administer COVID-19 vaccines in the Memphis area.

The retailer was chosen here and could begin giving the shots her next week, according to a story in The Daily Memphian. That story says, however, that the date for the Walmart rollout has not yet been confirmed.

But here are the eleven Memphis-area locations approved to give the shots:

Walmart has been gearing up to provide the shot over the past year, the retailer says on its website. At full capacity, Walmart and Sam's Club stores could deliver 10 million-13 million doses every month.  

"As we look to a future when supply can meet demand and more people are eligible to receive the vaccine, we plan to offer the vaccine seven days a week at our pharmacies, through planned in-store vaccination clinics and through large community events," reads a news release on the store's website.

The retailer has been training "thousands" of pharmacists and pharmacy techs, building a new digital scheduling tool, and partnering with state and federal agencies on allocations.

"At full capacity, we expect we will be able to deliver 10 million-13 million doses per month when supply and allocations allow," reads the site.

Here is a list of all Tennessee pharmacies approved so far to give the COVID-19 vaccine:
