LSU Health Shreveport

February 13 – For the safety of participants and clinic staff, vaccination clinics have been rescheduled due to inclement weather. LSU Health Shreveport encourages all those in Priority Group 1B Tier One, to get their COVID-19 vaccine at the Louisiana State Fair Grounds while the vaccine supply is in hand. Those eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine are individuals 65 and above, as well as COVID Emergency Response Personnel, Local Emergency Response and Law Enforcement. As seen around the US, vaccine availability is unpredictable so LSU Health Shreveport encourages all who are eligible to pre-register and receive the vaccine as soon as possible. Vaccination dates for Priority Group 1B Tier One are listed below.

While pre-registration is preferred, it is NOT required. The goal of our community vaccine site is to provide every eligible citizen with access to the vaccine as soon as possible. To preregister, go to the LSU Health Shreveport website at www.lsuhs.edu.

Individuals should bring ID and insurance information.
