This week, 652 state-wide vaccine providers receive very limited doses of COVID vaccine. These providers include national and independent pharmacies, public health providers, clinics and clinics, hospitals and more. The complete breakdown is as follows:
- 251 chain pharmacies (including 116 Wal-Mart, 7 Sam’s Club, 75 CVS, 21 Winn-Dixie in the retail pharmacy program)
- 158 independent pharmacies
- 61 hospitals
- 45 public health providers
- 39 Emergency care
- 37 medical practices
- 29 Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC)
- 11 Community Health Clinics (RHC)
- 21 other healthcare providers
LDH publishes a list of participating providers on its website covidvaccine.la.gov, along with their location and contact information. In addition to these providers, local vaccination events are held state-wide and are also posted on the LDH website.
Residents can call 211 to find a nearby vaccine provider or event.
Future distribution depends, among other factors, on vaccines that have become available to the state.
Participating providers must provide qualified individuals with available vaccine doses. Failure to do so will affect whether the provider will receive future allocations of the vaccine.
Eligible residents must contact the participating provider to make a reservation. Patients arriving without an appointment will not be vaccinated. LDH cannot make patient appointments. Only the provider can.
Patients receiving the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine will receive a second COVID vaccine at the same location as the first. The appointment for the second dose must be made during the first dose. If a resident misses an appointment for a second vaccination, he / she should immediately contact the provider of the first vaccination to schedule a new appointment. Ideally, if you have been vaccinated with Moderna, the second vaccination should be given 28 days after the first vaccination. If you have been vaccinated with Pfizer, you will need to give a second dose 21 days after the first dose. According to the CDC, the second dose can be safely taken for up to 42 days and can be longer after the first dose if needed.
The Johnson & Johnson vaccine is given in a single dose and, like the other two vaccines, is 100% effective in preventing COVID hospitalization and death.
The Louisiana Department of Health is coordinating efforts to distribute the COVID-19 vaccine in Louisiana. As more vaccines become available from the CDC, more individuals and groups will be vaccinated. We want everyone to have the opportunity to be vaccinated against COVID. We are confident that the COVID-19 vaccine will be an important tool for the final end of the pandemic.
