Arkansas lowered the age eligibility from 70 to 65, effective Tuesday, Gov. Asa Hutchinson announced Tuesday.

“This will add 115,000 Arkansans to the roll to be vaccinated,” Hutchinson said.

Vaccines are available through many pharmacies and clinics located in every county. Call ahead and make an appointment or share your contact information at a pharmacy or clinic convenient to you.

Hutchinson said the state has an adequate supply of the vaccine for the expanded eligibility. The vaccine already has been made available to teachers, emergency workers, nursing home residents and staff, and people 70 years old and older.

“This does not mean that everybody 70 and plus has been vaccinated because they haven’t,” he said.

“We’ve made broad swaths of progress in these different categories in 1A and starting 1B but there’s always more to do in those categories,” he said, “but it is time to move to 65 plus.”
