The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) closed its COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic at the Monroe Building at 4 p.m. Friday, March 18. UAMS will continue to offer COVID vaccines through individual clinics. Additionally, the COVID testing drive-thru site, located at Shuffield Drive and Jack Stephens Drive on the UAMS campus, will close at 4 p.m. Friday, March 25. Beginning Monday, March 28, COVID testing will be available by appointment only at the Monroe Building at 401 S. Monroe St.
Steppe Mette, M.D., CEO of the UAMS Medical Center and senior vice chancellor of UAMS Health says as the number of infections continue to decline, the need for mass testing decreases as well. By closing these drive-through services, UAMS will be able to move that workforce to other areas of need.
