Phase 1C Now Open

Arkansas Department of Health

Arkansas Governor, Asa Hutchinson, and the Arkansas Department Health continue to open up new categories of available vaccine recipients. We are all one phase closer to putting COVID-19 behind us.

  • Governor Asa Hutchinson announced Tuesday that Arkansans belonging to Phase 1-C of the COVID-19 vaccine distribution are now eligible to receive the shot.

  • The group includes essential workers in several categories such as: energy, finance, food service, IT and communication, legal, media, public health/human services, public safety, shelter and housing, and transportation and logistics, as well as those with pre-existing conditions aged 16-64 and people living in congregate settings.

  • However, Governor Hutchinson prefaced the announcement saying it may be some time before clinics are able to make appointments. “There are almost 1 million people in this category, and we still have not fully completed 1-B in some areas of the state," he said.

  • So, how do I get on a list? You can view a full list of vaccine locations HERE.

781,348. As of yesterday, the total number of doses given to Arkansans. Around 10% of the population in Arkansas is vaccinated.
