The Center of Excellence for Emerging Threats (CEVT) at LSU Health Shreveport continues to offer COVID-19 vaccinations at the North Campus site located at 2627 Linwood Avenue, Monday – Friday, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.

  • For initial doses of the vaccine, children ages 5 to 17 can ONLY receive the Pfizer vaccine.
  • Those age 5 and older who are moderately or severely immunocompromised may request a third primary dose of the appropriate vaccine.
  • Everyone ages 12 years and older can get a COVID-19 vaccine booster at least 5 months after completing their vaccine primary series.
  • Adults ages 50 years and older, people ages 12 years and older who are moderately or severely immunocompromised, and people who got 2 doses (1 primary dose and 1 booster) of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine are eligible to receive a second booster at least 4 months after their first booster.

All vaccinations take place without an individual needing to leave the vehicle. No appointments are needed for vaccinations. It is recommended that individuals who received their first and second dose of the vaccine from a non-LSUHS location should pre-register for a booster dose appointment at www.lsuhs.edu/covid19/vaccine. Individuals should provide ID and insurance information when they arrive at any LSUHS vaccine distribution site. Those that are without insurance are still eligible to receive the vaccine.
