STUTTGART, Ark. – Baptist Health Community Outreach’s mobile health unit will make a stop Friday, June 18, at Turning Point Ministries, 409 E. Michigan St. in Stuttgart to administer single-dose Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines.
The mobile vaccination clinic will be open from 2 to 5 p.m. that day.

COVID-19 was the third-leading cause of death in the United States in 2020 behind only heart disease and cancer. While there isn’t a vaccine that prevents the first two leading causes of death, there is a vaccine for the third.
People at higher risk for developing severe illness from COVID-19 include older adults and people of all ages with certain underlying medical conditions such as obesity, diabetes, cancer, heart disease, chronic kidney disease, dementia and various conditions that weaken your immune system.
By taking action and getting the vaccine, you are not only protecting yourself, but also helping to protect your family, friends, coworkers and fellow residents.
The Baptist Health Mobile Health Unit is traveling across the state this year, offering mobile COVID-19 vaccination clinics to help get more Arkansans vaccinated. It also provides free screenings and prevention education from Baptist Health’s team of caregivers.
