COVID Vaccine Update - September 13, 2023:
The U.S. government is no longer the sole provider of the COVID vaccine; i.e., the vaccine is now commercially available. Please note that the Springdale Health Department will no longer provide the COVID vaccine to individuals covered by Medicare, Medicaid, or by private health insurance. For more information about the new COVID vaccine, please visit the CDC’s website: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/stay-up-to-date.html . If you are interested in obtaining the new COVID vaccine, please contact your primary care provider and ask if they are planning to provide this service. The new COVID vaccine will also be available through retail outlets (e.g., Walgreens, Kroger, CVS, Sterling Community Pharmacy, Sam’s Club Pharmacy, Target Pharmacy, etc.). Please note the Springdale Health Department will only receive a very limited allotment of the new COVID vaccine to administer to individuals 19 and over who are uninsured.
