I have had several productive discussions with LDH officials in an effort to identify vaccination sites in our rural communities and in lower St. Martin. As the number of those eligible for the vaccine expands, and the supply increases, I am optimistic that additional locations can be secured. LDH and our healthcare providers have been extremely cooperative in this endeavor.

Those eligible for the vaccine as of are now:

  • Persons ages 65 years or older in the community
  • First responders to serve as vaccinators
  • Law enforcement and other first responders
  • Dialysis providers and patients
  • Ambulatory and outpatient providers and staff
    • Behavioral health providers and staff
    • Outpatient providers and staff
    • Urgent care clinic providers and staff
    • Community care providers and staff
    • Dental providers and staff
  • Professional 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)
  • 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
  • Health-related support personnel (lab staff, mortuary staff who have contact with corpses, pharmacy staff)
  • Schools of allied health students, residents and staff
  • State and local essential COVID emergency response personnel
  • Some elections staff ahead of March elections

Further information about the vaccines, a listing of all vaccination sites, and other relevant data can be obtained on the LDH website at ldh.la.gov/covidvaccine/.

Finally, please note that the distribution of the vaccine is an evolving process and the protocols associated there with are constantly changing. Indeed, a third vaccine manufactured by Johnson and Johnson may well be approved in the very near future. This will be a significant and POSITIVE development.
