A community COVID-19 vaccination clinic will be held today at the Lawrence County Health Unit.

The clinic begins at 8:30 a.m. and will continue while supplies last. Vaccinations will be available on a first come, first serve basis.

The Lawrence County Health Unit is located at 1050 West Free Street in Walnut Ridge.

Additional ADH clinics will be held weekly in four select local health units. Information on additional clinics is posted on the ADH COVID-19 vaccine clinics webpage.

Doses will be available to those who are currently eligible to receive a vaccine in Arkansas, which includes Arkansans aged 16 and older. However, these clinics will administer only the Johnson and Johnson vaccine, so these clinics will only be able to provide vaccinations to those 18 years and older. Those who are 16-17 years old are advised to only receive the Pfizer vaccine at this time. To find out more information about vaccine availability in your area, visit the ADH website or call 1-800-985-6030.

There is no out-of-pocket expense for the vaccine. People should bring their insurance cards if they have one. If they do not have insurance, the vaccine will still be available at no charge.

The three authorized COVID-19 vaccines have each undergone rigorous reviews that have proven them to be both safe and effective. Individuals can learn more about the vaccines and ADH vaccination plan at healthy.arkansas.gov /programs-services/topics/covid-19-vaccination-plan.
