FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — As the wait continues for the vaccine to be opened to ages 12-15, local pharmacies are already gearing up for the FDA’s approval.

Julie Stewart with Medical Arts Pharmacy said they are teaming up with the Fayetteville School District to get inside the schools and give both doses before summer.

I feel like there will hopefully be a pretty good response. It will certainly get us that much closer to herd immunity for sure.
