According to data compiled by Arkansas Center for Health Improvement, just thirty-two percent of Arkansas nursing homes report that fewer than half of their healthcare personnel are fully vaccinated for COVID-19. Vaccines are not currently mandated by the state of Arkansas, but President Biden's administration recently annouced a planned mandate on the federal level that will be tied to Medicare and Medicaid funding for these facilities.
