No, you will want to remove the Walden-specific information from the DOI/URL hybrid, as that information is specific to the Walden database you accessed the article from.
For example, the following DOI should be revised in this way:
DOI/URL in the Walden library database: https://doi-org.ezp.waldenulibrary.org/10.1186/s12889-019-7389-6
DOI/URL revised for APA style: https://doi.org/10.1186/s12889-019-7389-6

Always review the DOI format suggested by library databases or citation software. Even when the suggestions are designated as being in APA style, the format can still be incorrect.
