The Northwest Arkansas Council is organizing a mass vaccination clinic in Lowell on Friday, Feb. 26, from 8am to 4pm in the parking lot of J.B. Hunt headquarters. The clinic is intended to be a "trial run" to prepare for more large-scale events in the region and state. the mass vaccination plans to vaccinate up to 3,000 seniors.
Although the state's vaccine rollout plan includes health care workers, workers in education, and residents 65 and older, this weekend’s event will be reserved for Benton County residents 70 and older.
