Here's where you can get COVID vaccines this week

If you're eligible under the most recent COVID-19 vaccine requirements, here's a list of places to get the COVID vaccine in Louisiana.

NEW ORLEANS —

People who want a COVID vaccine need to sign for an appointment, but where?

The Louisiana Department of Health is giving eligible residents two options to sign up for an appointment to get the vaccine: At one of the participating healthcare provider locations or at a Community Vaccine Event. 

Eligible Louisianans can contact one of the places on the lists below and book an appointment at that location or community event. People who go to the locations or events without an appointment will not receive a vaccine.

If you don't see your COVID-19 Community Vaccination Event here, please email webteam@wwltv.com
