For the week of September 13-19, LSU Health Shreveport North Campus (located at 2627 Linwood Avenue) has suspended all public COVID-19 testing. Vaccinations are also suspended with the exception of 2nd doses of vaccine for those individuals who received their first vaccine dose from this location.

However, there are several outreach vaccine clinics being held this week that will be open to the public. (See below) In addition to the locations listed below, those seeking testing and vaccines during this timeframe can access these services at Ochsner LSU Health Shreveport Urgent Care sites, parish health units, other community urgent care clinics and pharmacies.  Fees/charges for these services may apply.

Individuals should provide ID and insurance information when they arrive at any LSUHS vaccination site. Those that are without insurance are still eligible to receive the vaccine. For a full schedule and to preregister, go to the LSU Health Shreveport website at www.lsuhs.edu.

This temporary change supports our commitment to provide school-based COVID-19 testing in 32 parishes and will allow the LSUHS COVID-19 Strike Teams to focus on testing of school-age children who cannot receive the vaccine.  Significant staffing is required to accomplish these critical public health goals. Efforts are underway to add staffing which will allow community testing and vaccines to resume as soon as possible. If you are interested in joining the LSUHS COVID-19 Strike Team, please go to www.lsuhs.edu/covid for details on available positions.
