U of A now vaccinating eligible employees

The University of Arkansas held its first vaccination clinic this weekend.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — The University of Arkansas held its first vaccination clinic this weekend. 

Eligible employees were able to make appointments to get their first dose today. 

University officials say they're reaching out to eligible employees via school email accounts. Right now, the school is reaching out to employees 65 and older who are now eligible to be vaccinated.

The school says it will likely take several weeks to vaccinate everyone who can get a vaccine at this time.
