Flu Clinic UPDATES!!  

Due to a delay in flu vaccine shipment that will decrease the amount of vaccine available to the Arkansas Department of Health, ADH is cancelling the NLRSD middle school and high school flu immunization clinics. This will allow ADH to make flu vaccine available to elementary-aged children who are key transmitters of influenza in the community. The following elementary schools will be holding flu clinics at the original scheduled dates listed in the link below. The Mass Flu Clinic for North Little Rock has also been cancelled.  If you have questions or concerns, please call the North Little Rock Health Department at 791-8551.
