“UAMS has been to cities and towns in every region of Arkansas with vaccinations and testing for COVID-19, but we don’t go alone,” said UAMS Chancellor Cam Patterson, M.D., MBA. “Working together with the state’s cities, counties, insurers and nonprofit organizations, we try to ensure that none of Arkansas’ 3 million residents will fall through the cracks. All of us want to maximize access to vaccines in as many ways as we can.”

There is no out-of-pocket cost for vaccinations, but those attending the clinic should bring valid IDs and insurance cards if they have them.

All Arkansans age 16 and older are eligible to receive the vaccine. A parent or guardian must come to the vaccine appointment with patients under age 18.

UAMS is conducting the large-scale vaccination effort in cooperation with the cities of North Little Rock and Sherwood, Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield, Simmons Bank Arena and Pulaski County.
