On Saturday, January 9, the City of Dardanelle, Dardanelle Regional Medical Center and Rose Drug Pharmacy of Dardanelle proudly partnered together to provide and administer the COVID-19 vaccine to the community.

The COVID-19 vaccination event was held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Dardanelle Regional Medical Center’s drive through COVID-19 testing tent.

Working together, they provided vaccinations to those within phase 1-A of the department of health’s COVID vaccination plan. Phase 1-A provides the  vaccine to health care workers, residents and staff of long-term care facilities, police, firefighters and EMS who work as first responders. Phase 1-A is expected to continue through the end of January.

Many thanks go to the City of Dardanelle, Dardanelle Regional Medical Center, Rose Drug Pharmacy and to many others who assisted with the event and made it a success.
