Nurses Crushing Covid is a group of 200+ nurses and other medical professionals from Northwest Arkansas who have been tirelessly distributing and administering vaccines to the community.

  • What started as an initiative by three local nurses to simply help, turned into a regional movement. Fayetteville Mayor Jordan proclaimed May 18, 2021, as “COVID-19 Vaccine Volunteer Day” in honor of this group.
  • Quote: "The reward has been in the many thanks we’ve received from the volunteers and from those receiving the vaccines.”

The Nurses Crushing Covid group plans to continue distributing shots. You can read the full, encouraging story HERE.
