Health Department: 406 vaccine providers in all 64 parishes receiving COVID vaccine this week
This week, 406 vaccine providers across the state were to receive limited doses of COVID vaccine.
These providers —– including 143 chain pharmacies, 118 independent pharmacies, 55 hospitals, 28 community health centers (including 23 federally qualified health centers, or FQHCs), seven rural health clinics (RHCs) and an additional 55 health care sites — represent all nine public health regions and 64 parishes of the state.
LDH has published the list of participating providers on its website: covidvaccine.la.gov. In addition, residents can call 211 to find a vaccine provider near them.
Future distribution is dependent on vaccine made available to the state, among other factors.
The vaccines will be available only for those in Phase 1B, Tier 1:
Persons ages 70 years or older;
Health-related support personnel (labs, mortuary, pharmacy);
Outpatient clinic providers and clinic staff;
Urgent care clinic providers and staff;
Community care clinic providers and staff;
Behavioral health clinic providers and staff;
Dialysis providers and clients;
Home care providers (including hospice workers) and home care recipients (including older and younger people with disabilities over the age of 16 who receive community or home-based care, as well as clients of home health agencies);
Dental providers and staff;
American Sign Language (ASL) interpreters and Support Service Providers (SSPs) working in community and clinic-based settings, and clients who are both deaf and blind; and
Students, residents, faculty and staff of allied health schools (if not already receiving or in a plan to receive from their respective schools);
Eligible residents must contact a participating provider and make an appointment with them. Patients who arrive without an appointment will not be vaccinated. LDH cannot make appointments for patients; only providers can.
