Hep A Vaccination Clinics


The Arkansas Department of Health will hold a Hepatitis A vaccination clinic Monday, June 11 from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Clay Co. Health Unit at 1009 S. Garfield St. in Piggott. Another clinic will be held Friday, June 15 from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Greene Co. Health Unit at 801 Goldsmith Rd. in Paragould.  

These clinics are for anyone at higher risk of getting Hep A. Risk factors include: close contact with someone who has Hep A; restaurant workers; people with infections or chronic diseases like Hep B or C, HIV/AIDS or diabetes; drug use; homelessness; or incarceration. If you do not fall into a group with a high risk of getting Hep A but are still concerned about Hep A, please see your doctor or healthcare provider.

At these clinics, the shot will be provided at no cost to the patient. ADH will bill the patient’s insurance if the patient has it. Patients should bring their insurance card and driver’s license if they have one.

Since February 2018, 31 cases of Hep A have been reported as part of an outbreak in northeast Arkansas, with a majority of cases in Clay and Greene counties. Cases have also been found in Lawrence, Randolph, and Craighead counties. All of the cases have been in adults.    MORE
