On Friday, April 16, UACCM will hold a walk-in vaccination clinic for the public, college employees, and students ages 18 and older to receive a COVID-19 vaccination.

The clinic, in collaboration with local providers, will distribute the Moderna vaccination.

The clinic will take place at the Fine Arts Auditorium from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and is on a first-come, first-served basis. Please bring a driver’s license as a method of identification. Health insurance cards are not required but encouraged.

A clinic for participants to receive the second Moderna dose will take place on Friday, May 21, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

“As UACCM chancellor, the good health and well being of our employees and students is of upmost importance for me,” said Lisa Willenberg, UACCM chancellor. “I am grateful the college is able to host this event, and proud that our UACCM nursing students are volunteering their services for this important effort.”

As of March 30, 2021, everyone who is age 16 and up is eligible to receive the vaccine after an announcement from Governor Asa Hutchinson. This means that the student body can now join those from phases 1A, 1B, and 1C that have already received the vaccine.

The UACCM campus community is also encouraged to explore off-campus options including mass-vaccination events with the Arkansas Department of Health and appointments with local pharmacies. These appointments fill quickly, so please check their websites to stay up to date as new appointment times become available.

UACCM has maintained its guidelines to mandate a facial covering and social distancing guidelines on campus and at college events. All attendees at the clinic must wear facial coverings and continue to practice physical distancing.

For more information about pharmacies that offer the COVID vaccine, consult this guide from the Arkansas Pharmacists Association. The state also has a Vaccine Call Line (1-800-985-6030) to learn about vaccine appointments in your area.
