Nursing Home Staffs Across Arkansas Report Low COVID-19 Vaccination Rates

Arkansas Center for Health Improvement

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 annouceda planned mandate on the federal level that will be tied to Medicare and Medicaid funding for these facilities.
