The Louisiana Department of Health is coordinating the COVID-19 vaccine distribution effort in Louisiana. As more vaccines become available from the CDC, more individuals and groups will be offered a vaccination.

CURRENT PHASE OF DISTRIBUTION: Phase 1B, Tier 1


Under the current Phase of Distribution, limited amounts of COVID vaccines are available at select locations only for:
  • Persons ages 70 years or older in the community
  • 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 providers and staff
  • Dialysis providers and recipients
  • 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
  • Students, residents, faculty, and staff of allied health schools (if not already receiving vaccine or in a plan to receive from their respective schools)
 

HOW TO GET THE VACCINE:

  • Patients must contact a participating location and make an appointment at the location. Do not arrive at a location without an appointment. LDH cannot make appointments for residents; only participating locations can. Appointments do not have to be made to receive the second dose of the vaccine. 
  • Second doses are given at the same location a person receives their first dose and the appointment for the second dose will be made during the appointment for the first dose.
