News Article: NWA Council to Host COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic at Razorback Stadium April 1

March 31, 2021

The Northwest Arkansas Council in collaboration with the region’s health care systems will host an open COVID-19 vaccination clinic at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium on the U of A campus on Thursday, April 1 from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. Participants must schedule an appointment prior to the clinic.

The clinic is for any Arkansan who is 16 years and older and would like to receive the vaccine. This will be the first of multiple weekly clinics provided by the NWA Council throughout the Northwest Arkansas region.

Eligible Northwest Arkansas residents can sign up for an appointment at the NWA Council website. Participants must also fill out an immunization consent form.

This clinic will be providing the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine which requires two doses. A second dose clinic will be scheduled in three weeks.

Volunteers to help at the clinic are also needed. Those interested can sign up now. Volunteers with a healthcare/medical background will be given first priority. Students who are pre-med, nursing or physician assistants majors are all encouraged to volunteer.

If you are unable to attend this week’s clinic, the NWA Council will be holding other clinics on Thursday, April 8 and Thursday, April 15 at the Northwest Arkansas Mall in the former Sears Service Center (4201 N Shiloh Dr., Suite 98) from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. Links to register for those clinics will be available in the coming days.

WHO IS ELIGIBLE

Per the governor’s announcement this week, all Arkansans age 16 and older are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine at the NWA Council’s clinics.

For information about the state vaccination plan, visit the Arkansas Department of Health website.

PARKING

The vaccine clinic on April 1 will be conducted in the SEC Club of Razorback Stadium (350 N Razorback Road), which can be accessed from the North End Zone parking lot located at the intersection of Razorback Road, Maple Street and Stadium Drive. Members of the public should plan to park in Lots 44, 72 and 73 on campus in spots closest to the stadium and enter through Gate 14. 

WHAT TO BRING

This documentation is required to receive the vaccine:

  • A completed Vaccine Consent Form
  • Driver's license or other form of photo identification and age verification

Mask-wearing will still be required when attending the vaccination clinic. The U of A has implemented extensive cleaning and operational protocols to keep the campus community safe and healthy from community spread and airborne transmission of COVID-19 while also complying with state and federal directives.

These health guidelines can be found in the university’s Spring COVID-19 Response Guide.
