Distribution will be managed through the current phased, tiered approach established by the Louisiana Department of Health (LDH). Currently, vaccinations are available to Louisiana residents who meet the “Phase 1A and Phase 1B” criteria. These groups include frontline healthcare workers, nursing home and long-term care community residents and staff, teachers and school personnel, day care personnel, home health providers, pregnant persons, law enforcement personnel, persons ages 65 and above, and persons ages 55 – 65 with one of the underlying medical conditions listed by the CDC. As more vaccines become available from the CDC, and LDH opens the criteria further, more individuals and groups will be offered a vaccination.

Physical distancing, masking, temperature checks and healthscreening will be required on site. For more information about COVID-19, the vaccination phases, and how to protect yourself from the virus, please visit lcmchealth.org/coronavirus. Please refer to the LDH website at www.ldh.la.gov/covidvaccine/ for a complete list of eligible groups.
