Where to find a vaccine clinic in Northwest Arkansas and Fort Smith Metro

Coronavirus

NORTHWEST ARKANSAS (KNWA/KFTA) — Mass vaccination clinics are popping up in Northwest Arkansas and the River Valley as Governor Asa Hutchinson announced Tuesday every Arkansan over the age of 16 is now eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

Governor Hutchinson announced Arkansans can call a new toll-free number for assistance with scheduling a COVID-19 vaccination appointment.

The line — (800) 985-6030 — will be open Monday through Sunday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., beginning today, Hutchinson said.

Hutchinson said the new system will be supplementary to the existing system, which asks Arkansans to contact a pharmacy or provider for an appointment directly.

Walmart and Sam’s Club pharmacies across the region are currently offering the COVID-19 vaccine through the U.S. Federal Retail Pharmacy Program.

According to a spokesperson for the Bentonville-based retailer on Thursday, the company currently has appointments available for eligible Arkansans at stores across the region. For a complete list of locations see the link below.
