UAMS Accepting Appointments at COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic

By Yavonda Chase

The COVID Vaccine Clinic is open 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday. It also is open on Sundays from noon to 4 p.m. To request an appointment visit or call 501-686-8960. UAMS patients may also make appointments through MyChart. Appointment requests will be answered in the order in which they are received.

You do not have to be a UAMS patient to receive a vaccine at the clinic. UAMS is committed to helping vaccinate as many Arkansans as possible. Vaccine supply may limit response times and appointment availability.

A photo ID with patient’s date of birth is required to show that they are aged 70 or older and eligible for a vaccine. School ID badges are required for those under 70.

UAMS is using both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. Both have been shown in clinical trials to be extremely effective. To ensure patients receive both required doses of the vaccine, which is necessary for maximum protection, two appointments will be scheduled for each patient.

UAMS is the state's only health sciences university, with colleges of Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, Health Professions and Public Health; a graduate school; hospital; a main campus in Little Rock; a Northwest Arkansas regional campus in Fayetteville; a statewide network of regional campuses; and seven institutes: the Winthrop P.
