Surplus dose process for Reser Clinics

If individuals do not arrive for their scheduled appointment, Benton County and Samaritan Health Services work together to ensure that there are no left over doses of vaccine at the end of each clinic. Eligible individuals are invited to come to Reser Stadium approximately 30 minutes before the end of each clinic to form a standby line for potential surplus vaccine doses. The clinic tracks the number of people who have not arrived for their scheduled appointment and the standby line will be used to schedule same-day appointments. Surplus doses will be administered to individuals in the stand-by line on a first come, first served basis. 

A text message alert system, Dr. B, will be utilized once all individuals in the standby line have received the vaccine. For community members interested in signing up for this tool, you must have a phone that can receive text messages, and sign up through the Dr. B website at hidrb.com.
