Hospitals in the State of Arkansas are quickly seeing a rise in the number of COVID-related admissions. In the first 15 days of July, admissions have doubled from 330 on July 1 to 636 on July 15, statewide. Magnolia Regional Medical Center reminds the Southwest Arkansas community that the COVID vaccine is readily available for anyone age 12 and up, and is free for recipients. We encourage individuals who have not received the COVID vaccine to reconsider their decision, and to discuss the benefits and risks of the vaccine with their primary healthcare provider.
