Approximately 1,513 providers across the state will receive limited doses of COVID-19 vaccines this week, according to the Louisiana Department of Health.
Of that total, there are 16 providers in Livingston Parish. They are located in Albany, Denham Springs, Maurepas, Port Vincent, Springfield, and Walker.
In March, the state expanded the list of those eligible to receive a vaccine, making shots available to anyone 18 and older (or 16 and older for the Pfizer vaccine), regardless of employment or underlying health conditions.
There are currently three approved COVID-19 vaccines: The two-dose Pfizer and Moderna vaccines and the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine, which was recently reinstated after an 11-day pause that allowed federal officials to investigate rare cases of blood clots.
The Louisiana Department of Health is coordinating the state’s COVID-19 vaccine distribution effort.
Patients receiving Moderna or Pfizer vaccines will receive their second dose of the COVID vaccine at the same location they received their first dose. Second-dose appointments should be made during the administration of the first dose.
Eligible residents must contact a participating provider to make an appointment. Patients who arrive without an appointment will not be vaccinated. LDH cannot make appointments for patients; only providers can.
As of the latest data, more than 2.6 million vaccine doses have been administered across the state. More than 1.2 million people have been fully vaccinated.
People needing assistance are encouraged to call the state’s COVID-19 vaccine hotline at 1-855-453-0774. Hours of operation for the hotline are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Sunday.
The hotline can help residents schedule vaccine appointments, find vaccine providers in their area and connect people with medical professionals who can answer vaccine-related questions.
