Today, Monday, January 18, from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Baxter Regional Medical
Center will only have enough vaccine doses to vaccinate employees of the
Mountain Home Public School District and child care workers in Baxter
and Marion Counties.
On Friday, January 22, from 1 to 6 p.m. at The Sheid on the campus of ASUMH,
Baxter County pharmacies (Heartland Pharmacy and Medi Save Pharmacy) will
vaccinate employees of Mountain Home Christian Academy, Cotter Public
Schools, Norfork Public Schools, Flippin Public Schools, Yellville Public
Schools, and the remainder of the child care workers in Baxter and Marion Counties.
Baxter Regional has requested a large supply of vaccine doses to vaccinate
persons 70 years of age and older in accordance with the plan announced
by Governor Asa Hutchinson. The plan calls for partial ‘Phase 1-B’
vaccinations, but we have not received confirmation at this time from
the Arkansas Department of Health (ADH) if or when those will be made
available for us to distribute. We do know at this time that there are
simply not enough doses available to vaccinate all eligible Arkansans.
We estimate that it will take thousands of doses to vaccinate our 70+
population, which we do not have. The ADH expects to receive additional
supplies each week and will work to make them available as quickly as possible.
Please hold all inquiry calls regarding the vaccine at this time and be
sure to check here for updates.
