Southeastern Grocers have announced they have expanded and added stores in Lee, DeSoto, and Charlotte Counties.

The expansion was to accommodate and include appointments for newly eligible groups such as daycare workers, preschool teachers, and educators in elementary, middle, and high schools to be vaccinated with no age limit, following new Federal Retail Pharmacy Program guidelines.

Fresco y Más, Harveys Supermarket, and Winn-Dixie stores will also administer vaccinations to persons under the age of 65 deemed medically vulnerable by a physician, in accordance with the recent executive order by the state of Florida.

As a preferred retail partner in the fight against COVID-19, the grocer will also continue to offer free vaccines to health care workers, residents, and staff of long-term care facilities and adults ages 65 and older in accordance with the Florida health authority guidelines, as available.
