Ready to get together?
We are! Our first IN PERSON meeting for 2021 will be held on July 13th. Although we'll be conducting our usual business and opening the floor to questions and comments from our members, we're also celebrating!
We'll have food for all of you, music, great conversation, and two special speakers: Micah Wallace, President of the Young Democrats of Arkansas, and Sarah Scanlon, Executive Director of Emerge Arkansas!
Please plan to come and stay for the whole event - we want it to be a fun, festive atmosphere, filled with good news, revving us up for the rest of the year, and filled with happiness about our Democratic White House and successful vaccinations!
Watch this space for more details!
Democratic Volunteers Help with COVID Vaccinations
Smith Drugs, ECHO Clinic, and volunteers from the Democratic Party of Carroll County have teamed up to help in the delivery of the COVID 19 Moderna vaccine here in Carroll County.
Under the direction of Suzie Bell and Dr. Dan Bell, the group has delivered over 1,370 first shots of the vaccine to those who have signed up through Smith Drugs in Eureka Springs. The group has been delivering between 200 and 400 shots per week.
Now with the eligibility criteria being expanded, it is expected that the workload will also expand.
A drive-through venue and a large team of volunteers on the telephone and administrating the shots have provided this effort a lead in Carroll County. Of the current 4,053 first-time shots provided in Carroll County, this group of volunteers has stepped up and provided over 1/3 of the county shots. There are 5 other venues that also provide COVID vaccinations throughout the county.
We are not celebrating yet, as Carroll County is behind (only 18% of the county has received a first shot) some of the leading counties in Arkansas that have over a 25% first vaccination rate. With the continued efforts of this team, we will continue to provide the needed community support.
Kudos to all of the volunteers, staff, and personnel who have made this a continuing success. Another example of Democrats are working hard to ensure the health of all of Carroll county.
