COVID-19 Response

Vaccine Resources

COVID-19 Vaccines are now widely available. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) approved and authorized the Pfizer BioNTech, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson / Janssen vaccines to prevent COVID-19 in the United States.

All currently authorized and recommended COVID-19 vaccines are safe, are effective and reduce your risk of severe illness. The CDC does not recommend one vaccine over another.

These vaccines have undergone robust safety reviews and clinical trials. Though the development of the vaccines have followed accelerated timelines, safety has not been compromised. A thorough system is in place to evaluate safety of the vaccines even after they are in use.

How to Get the Vaccine

A map and list of pharmacies and other clinics providing vaccine is available here. Eligible Arkansans can make an appointment at a community pharmacy. Vaccine clinics and events may also be available in your area through hospitals and health care providers. For those who work in education, the district, facility or college/university should determine how many doses are needed, and then reach out to an ADH Local Health Unit or a community pharmacy to schedule a vaccination clinic.

Vaccines are widely available in Northwest Arkansas. The Northwest Arkansas Council developed a community vaccine calendar with information on upcoming vaccine clinics in the region.

Businesses, churches or schools or other organizations interested in hosting vaccine clinics at their places of business or events should contact Ryan Cork at ryan@nwacouncil.org.
