The Center of Excellence for Emerging Threats (CEVT) continues to offer COVID-19 testing and vaccinations at the North Campus site located at 2627 Linwood Avenue, Monday – Friday, 10AM – 6PM.

  • PCR Testing is available to all ages.
  • For initial doses of the vaccine, children ages 5 to 17 may ONLY receive the Pfizer vaccine, but adults aged 18 and older may receive the Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
  • Those age 5 and older who are moderately or severely immunocompromised may request a third primary dose of the appropriate vaccine.
  • The Pfizer Booster shot is available to children ages 12 to 17 that have received their second shot five or more months ago.  

Regarding Boosters, the FDA recommends:

  • If unvaccinated, Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna (mRNA vaccines) are recommended.
  • Those that are fully vaccinated, should request a booster shot if:
    • They received their second Pfizer-BioNTech more than 5 months ago and are age 12+ years
    • They are 18 years of age and received their second Moderna shot more than 6 months ago
    • They received a J&J/Janssen shot more than 2 months ago

All vaccinations and/or testing takes place without an individual needing to leave the vehicle.
No appointments are needed for first or second doses, or the booster. Individuals that received the first and second dose of the vaccine from a non-LSUHS location should pre-register at www.lsuhs.edu to receive the booster.

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. To preregister, go to the LSU Health Shreveport website at www.lsuhs.edu.
