UAMS opens new Little Rock vaccination clinic for COVID-19, flu

Residents of Little Rock looking to get vaccinations for the flu or COVID-19 will now have a one-stop option.

Officials with the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences announced Monday that they have opened a new clinic in the capital city providing vaccine doses for both influenza and COVID-19.

The clinic, located at 401 South Monroe Street, will be open 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and will offer first and second doses of both the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines, as well as the vaccine for the seasonal flu variant.

UAMS chancellor and UAMS Health CEO Dr. Cam Patterson believes that the demand for vaccinations could soon spike as people seek out their annual flu shot and third “booster” doses of the COVID-19 vaccine become available.

People looking to get a vaccine can make an appointment with the clinic, but appointments are not required, though third doses of a COVID-19 vaccine do require an order by a UAMS provider.
