Washington Regional Launches Online Scheduling Tool for COVID-19 Vaccine Appointments

Washington Regional has launched an online scheduling tool that allows community members to self-schedule an appointment to receive a COVID-19 vaccination. Individuals eligible for the vaccine based upon current Arkansas Department of Health (ADH) prioritization guidance include:
  • Phase 1A – health care workers; long-term care staff/residents; first responders
  • Phase 1B – people 65+; childcare and education workers; police, fire and other first responders; correction officers; food and agriculture workers; individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities; essential government workers; grocery store and meal delivery employees; postal and package delivery service workers; public transit workers; houses of worship; manufacturing workers
Washington Regional is currently vaccinating those who are in ADH prioritized categories and will require verification of age and/or employment at time of appointment.

According to Washington Regional Vice President of Clinic Operations Paula Storment, “The number of appointments available will correspond with the number of first dose vaccines we will receive each week from ADH. We typically learn the number of doses a few days before arrival. As we are notified, we will open the same number of appointments to ensure all vaccine is distributed promptly upon arrival.” Storment cautions, “We expect appointments to fill up quickly as demand for the vaccine still exceeds supply. If you check the website and no appointments are available, we ask that you check back at a later time.”

Vaccines are administered by appointment at Washington Regional’s drive-thru vaccination site at the corner of North Gregg Avenue and West Appleby Road in Fayetteville.
