Communities for Immunity

 Website banner

The Scott Family Amazeum is proud to receive a Communities for Immunity award to support our work to promote vaccine confidence in Northwest Arkansas. As a trusted community resource, the Amazeum plays a critical role in building vaccine confidence and fighting the pandemic. The $24,600 award funds efforts in the first quarter of 2022. In partnership with Arkansas Children's Northwest and the Northwest Arkansas Council, these endeavors include raising awareness of the safety and efficacy of vaccines for children 5 to 11 years old, creating public service announcements addressing questions and concerns of parents, and providing access to vaccinations during clinics at the Amazeum.  

Communities for Immunity provides funding and support to museums and libraries engaging their communities to boost COVID-19 vaccine confidence. The initiative is made possible with the support from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) and is led by the Association of Science and Technology Centers (ASTC) and the American Alliance of Museums.

Information on vaccination clinics coming soon. 

The Amazeum is partnering with the Northwest Arkansas Council to hold vaccinationdontwait840x400 clinics from January through March 2022 to encourage families with children 5 and older to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

COVID-19 vaccines are free; insurance is not required and those attending the clinics will NOT need to provide identification or social security number to get vaccinated. Children ages 5-17 must have a parent or legal guardian with them to provide consent to the vaccination. If you have previously had a COVID-19 vaccine, please bring your CDC vaccination card. First, second and booster doses of Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech are available at the clinics dependent on CDC/FDA approved eligibility. Currently, only the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is approved for children 5 to 11 years old. Pfizer BioNTech boosters are now approved for anyone ages 16 and older.  

Registration is encouraged but not required. For information and registration for these and other clinics throughout Northwest Arkansas, visit the Northwest Arkansas Council’s vaccine calendar at https://nwacouncil.org/vaccine-calendar/.
