LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KAIT) - Arkansas state health officials are working to get COVID-19 vaccination doses available for children but, as of Wednesday morning, the doses were only available at about half of the state’s local health units.

According to content partner KARK, the Arkansas Department of Health said the doses are available at 37 local health units, while 46 offices around the state do not have the doses.

Officials said people have the best opportunity to get the doses in Northeast and Northwest Arkansas, with 22 out of 38 offices in those areas having the vaccine.

Less than half of the health unit offices in Central Arkansas have the doses.
