There will be a free drive-thru COVID-19 vaccine clinic on Thursday, Sept. 9 from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the BCMC Rural Health Clinic parking lot, located at 304 East Central Street in Warren. This event is being sponsored by the Arkansas Rural Health Partnership (ARHP), Bradley County Medical Center, and Gannaway Drug Store.
All three brands of the vaccine will be available, including the Pfizer two-shot vaccine, which was recently granted full approval by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for people age 16 and older. The Pfizer brand also has an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for ages 12-15. The Moderna two-shot vaccine and one-shot Johnson & Johnson have EUA for people 18 and older and will also be available at the vaccine clinic. If you get one of the two-shot vaccines, the second dose will be given on Thursday, Sept. 30.
If you are an immunocompromised person, you can also get your third dose of the vaccine at this clinic. You will not have to get out of your car to receive the vaccine. You can stay in your vehicle for the shot and for the necessary monitoring time. There is no appointment necessary to receive the vaccine.
This is the second drive-thru COVID-19 vaccine clinic the ARHP is conducting after a successful one in Ashley County in August. Gannaway Drug Store is located at 101 North Main Street in Warren and has been instrumental in administering doses of COVID-19 vaccines in Bradley County.
