Governor Hutchinson Issues Statement on the Arkansas Supreme Court’s Vaccine Order

March 4, 2021
LITTLE ROCK – Governor Asa Hutchinson issued the following statement on the Arkansas Supreme Court’s order for essential government employees to receieve COVID-19 vaccines:

“I appreciate the Supreme Court’s concern for judges and staff members of the court system and for attorneys whose cases require them to work in person at a court house. Our schedule for vaccinations takes into account the needs and risk level for all Arkansans, and this group is not yet eligible in the 1B phase. As our allocation of vaccine increases, we will be able to move more quickly, but currently, court employees who don’t otherwise qualify for a shot will have to wait for their eligibility.”
