The Arkansas Department of Health will hold a series of mass vaccination clinics throughout the state starting tomorrow. There will be three in Pulaski county on Thursday: at the Jacksonville Community Center in Jacksonville (8 a.m. – 6 p.m.), the Church at Rock Creek in Little Rock (9 a.m. – 7 p.m.) and at Dickey-Stephens Ball Park in North Little Rock (8 a.m. – 5 p.m.).
Vaccinations will be free but are in limited supply. According to a press release from the ADH, the supply is so small that only “priority groups” will be given the vaccine. Those at most risk are pregnant women, children from 6 months to 4 years and children 5 to 18 with underlying medical conditions. Seasonal flu vaccines will also be available. Check here for a complete listing of clinics throughout the state. To learn more about fighting the flu, check out the health department’s website.
