TEXARKANA, Arkansas — College Hill Drug and Medical in collaboration with the Twin Cities Ministerial Alliance and the Miller County Office of Emergency Management will host a COVID-19 vaccination clinic Thursday.

The clinic will be from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Church of the Living God, 928 Laurel.

People can register by going to the drug store, by visiting the website at or by call 870-772-6969.

"We are trying to find out how many will be there," said OEM Director Joe Bennett. "They will bring a certain amount of doses and we don't want to waste any."

OEM and College Hill Drug are also working on adding clinics in Fouke and Doddridge and would like feedback from residents who are interested in those clinics, Bennett said.

Volunteers are needed for Thursday's clinic and future clinics.

Volunteers will help guide people at the clinic, help with paperwork or observe them after they receive their shots. Any nurses or medical professionals who wish to volunteer, should contact the pharmacy.

A number of eligibility requirements have been added to Phase 1B.

Those included are:

Age 65 and older

Food and agriculture workers

Public transit workers

People with intellectual or developmental disabilities

Grocery store workers

Jail workers

Postal service workers

Manufacturing workers

Saturday's vaccination clinic at Arkansas High School was successful but not as many people were vaccinated as officials had hoped. About 550 people were vaccinated, Bennett said.
