The mass COVID-19 vaccination clinic planned for 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday at the Marion County Fairgrounds in Summit will feature the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
Open to all Arkansans in Phase 1-B — including seniors age 65 and over — the Arkansas Department of Health (ADH) says the clinic will have 250 doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, available on a first-come, first-served basis with no reservations required.
Additional ADH clinics will be held weekly in each of the state’s five public health regions. Information on clinics in subsequent weeks will be posted on the ADH COVID-19 vaccine clinics webpage and reservations will be accepted.
There is no out-of-pocket expense for the vaccine. Those attending should bring their insurance cards. If you do not have insurance, the vaccine will be available at no charge.
Phase 1-B also includes those who work in education; police, fire and other first responders; jails and correctional facilities; food and agriculture; essential government; grocery store and meal delivery; postal and package delivery services; public transit; houses of worship; and manufacturing. Also, those with intellectual or developmental disabilities can obtain the vaccine.
The Marion County Fairgrounds is located at 513 East Seawell Avenue in Summit.
