COVID-19 Vaccine Update - 04/12/2021*******************************************************
As we navigate this dynamic situation, we are trying to provide ways of giving out information when we can.
Here are some of the common questions we received:
Who is eligible to be vaccinated?
Presently, all Arkansans (or those people employed in Arkansas) and over the age of 16 are eligible for the vaccine.
Which vaccine are you distributing?
We provide the Pfizer vaccine. This vaccine requires two doses, three weeks apart.
When are you scheduling COVID-19 Vaccination appointments?
While we are booking appointments via our online scheduler, they fill up quick. We are doing our best to accommodate demand while servicing our customers. Our hope is that as more locations continue to become available for dispensing the vaccine, this demand decreases and appointment availability improves.
Are we able to put people on a "list"?
We have a "stand-by" list you can put your contact information on. We do our best to carefully schedule our vaccine allocations so that none is wasted but in some instances of "no show" appointments we may be able to get you in. Due to vaccine expiration, most cases will be short notice. You can sign up here:
Can I just "show up" and hope there is an extra dose at the end of the day?
We aren't going to tell people not to come our store, but we are trying to maintain social distancing rules while vaccinating and serving our existing patients. Therefore, we are asking that you not show up looking for an unscheduled vaccination. We are contacting those already on our list for any appointments that don't show or extra doses at the end of the day.
I'm scheduled for an appointment, does this mean I need to schedule for the second dose?
No. If you are scheduled already you have a spot reserved for your second vaccination. Being said, we are depending on receiving vaccine from the State. We aren't anticipating a problem with supply, based on the information we have been given.
I tried contacting Teasley Drug, why have I not received a Email, call, or message back?
We can't apologize enough for this. Customer service is what we pride ourselves on and taking care of our patients. Being said, we simply don't have the ability to respond to the monstrous number of requests we have been sent. We are handling what we can, when we can, for who we can but given the demand we most likely won't be able to meet your expectations.
Why is it so difficult to get vaccinated?
It's hard for a number of reasons, but much of it is primarily attributable to the situation. There are a lot of people who desperately want the vaccine now and limited resources to distribute it. We get it. Its frustrating for us also, we don't like letting people down. Please be patient with our staff as they are doing their best to help. We're all doing our best in this situation but please don't be rude with them.
