ADH To Hold Weekly COVID-19 Vaccine Clinics In Each Region
Little Rock, Ark. – Beginning next week, mass COVID-19 vaccination clinics will be held weekly at one location in each of the Arkansas Department of Health's five public health regions across the state.
Each week, vaccine clinics will happen in each of the five public health regions. At first, vaccines will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis, and no reservations will be accepted. In future weeks, a toll-free number will be available to call and make reservations.
Doses will be available to those who are currently eligible to receive a vaccine in Arkansas. These include Arkansans who are 65 and older, those who work in education and those who work in food manufacturing. Click here for complete details about Arkansans currently eligible for the vaccine.
Details on the first five clinics are posted below. Information on clinics in subsequent weeks will be posted on the ADH COVID-19 vaccine clinics webpage.
