Upcoming COVID-19 vaccination events in Benton County, June 2022

Tuesday, June 14, 2022

The Benton County Health Department continues to work with community partners to offer COVID-19 vaccination events throughout the County during the month of June 2022. The Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson vaccines will be available at each event. 

All individuals 5 years and older are eligible to receive the vaccine, including the newly authorized booster dose for those 5 to 11 years old. Drop-ins welcome, no appointment needed. Primary vaccination series, first and second boosters will be available at each of the events. Individuals 5 years and older should receive a first booster dose at least five (5) months after completing their primary series. Individuals 50 years and older, as well as those 12 - 49 years old with immunocompromising conditions may receive a second COVID-19 vaccine booster. This second booster may be given 4 months after the previous booster. 

Even if authorized, the COVID-19 vaccine for younger children ages 6 months to 4 years old will not be available at these events. This vaccine is a new formulation: supplies need to be distributed and providers will need time to prepare before it can be offered. For this age group, a pediatrician’s or other medical provider’s office can provide a more welcoming environment. Benton County Health recommends that parents and guardians work with their medical providers once this age group is eligible for vaccination.

Between medical providers, pharmacies, and special vaccination events there is an opportunity every day to get a COVID-19 vaccine. Here is the schedule and details for upcoming special events:
