Josh Bright of North Arkansas Regional Medical Center (NARMC) spoke with “Around The Table” on KHOZ Thursday to provide an update on the state’s vaccine distribution in Boone County.
Bright said 6,600 doses have been given and that second doses are coming in. Pfizeer doses are being finished up and Bright said Moderna will be started soon. “We have more doses coming up next week that have been kind of hindered by the weather,” Bright said.
Bright said they have seen some resistance to taking the vaccine and that people have the ability to choose whether to take it or not. Bright said a clinic is being provided Friday. Bright said despite the negative press, Arkansas is a leader in vaccine distribution in the nation.
Bright said to his knowledge, there have been no cases of COVID-19 variants in the area.
