How To Get Vaccinated

Baptist Health has set up COVID-19 vaccination sites at medical centers, clinics, and urgent care locations across the state. Third doses of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines—and booster doses of the Pfizer vaccineare available to eligible groups at Baptist Health clinics and medical centers. Urgent care locations do not currently offer third doses.

The most current information regarding Baptist Health vaccination clinics can be found via MyChart or by calling 1-888-BAPTIST.

All Arkansans 12 years of age and older are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Age eligibility for certain vaccines – Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson & Johnson – varies by Baptist Health location. 

  • Those coming for COVID-19 vaccination at a Baptist Health vaccine clinic should bring a form of photo ID.
  • If you are coming for a second or third dose of either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, please also bring your COVID-19 vaccination card with you.
  • For patients under 18 years of age, please bring a photo ID or some form of identification or documentation that includes the patient’s name and date of birth. A parent must sign consent for minors to receive the vaccination.

Moderately to severely immunocompromised people may not build enough protection against COVID-19 after receiving their second dose. In this case, a third dose is necessary to help them build more protection against the disease. A third dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine is only recommended for moderately to severely immunocompromised recipients ages 12 and older who received their second dose of the vaccine at least 28 days ago and fall under established criteria.

A booster can be given to those whose immune response may have weakened over time. This response is referred to as “waning immunity.” The FDA has issued an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA), deeming booster doses for the Pfizer vaccine safe and effective for some groups of individuals six months after receiving their second dose.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) currently recommends a third dose of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccine for moderately to severely immunocompromised recipients ages 12 and older who received their second dose of the vaccine at least 28 days ago and who fall under established criteria. Those coming for a third dose should receive the same vaccine that had previously been administered.

The CDC classifies eligible recipients as those who: 

  • Are in active treatment for solid tumor and hematologic malignancies 
  • Have received a transplant and are taking immunosuppressive therapy 
  • Have received CAR-T cell therapy or a stem cell transplant (within two years of transplantation or taking immunosuppression therapy) 
  • Have advanced or untreated HIV infection 
  • Have a moderate or severe primary immunodeficiency such as DiGeorge syndrome or Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome 
  • Are undergoing active treatment with high-dose corticosteroids and other pharmaceuticals that are immunosuppressive or immunomodulatory.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) currently recommends a booster dose of the Pfizer vaccine for eligible recipients who received their second dose of the Pfizer vaccine at least six months ago. 

The CDC classifies eligible recipients as: 

  • Individuals who are 65 years or older
  • Individuals 18-64 years of age with “underlying medical conditions” 
    • Qualifying conditions would include, but are not limited to obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, lung disease, heart disease, and kidney disease.
  • Individuals 18-64 years of age with “frequent occupational exposure” to COVID-19
    • Qualifying occupations would include but are not limited to health care workers, teachers and daycare staff, grocery workers, and those in homeless shelters or prisons.
