Amazeum will host a community event on health and vaccines

BENTONVILLE, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) – The Scott Family Amazeum has announced that it will host a community health and COVID-19 vaccination event on Saturday, March 12 as part of an alliance with community organizations working to improve health care in northwestern Arkansas.

Razorback Transit will provide free transportation to Springdale attendees. The bus will depart from the Jones Center, located at 922 E. Emma Ave. in Springdale at 9:00 a.m. and will return at the end of the event. The first 100 registrants will also receive free entry to the Amazeum and a free lunch provided by Brightwater.

According to a press release, the family event will provide community health resources, food and music to attendees. The first, second and booster doses of the COVID-19 vaccine will also be available for people aged 5 and over.

COVID-19 vaccines are free and no insurance is required. People who attend the clinics will not need to provide ID or a Social Security number to get vaccinated. Children aged 5 to 17 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian to give consent for vaccination.

If you have already been vaccinated against COVID-19, the Amazeum asks that you bring your CDC vaccination record. First, second, and booster doses of Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech are available in clinics based on CDC/FDA-approved eligibility. Currently, only the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is approved for children ages 5 to 11. Pfizer-BioNTech boosters are now approved for anyone 16 and older.

The release notes, the Amazeum received a Communities for Immunity award for supporting local efforts to increase vaccine confidence, address vaccine hesitancy, and make vaccines accessible across Northwest Arkansas. The museum works with the Northwest Arkansas Council and Arkansas Children’s Northwest to host the clinics and raise awareness about the safety and effectiveness of vaccines for children ages 5-11.

Registration is strongly encouraged to secure access to the event and those wishing to attend may register here. It will last from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
