As of Monday, more than 1.6 million people across Louisiana are eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine.
That comes after Gov. John Bel Edwards expanded the pool of those eligible to include K-12 teachers and school support staff, daycare staff, those who are pregnant, non-emergency medical transportation providers and staff, and people ages 55 to 64 with certain health conditions as defined by the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
This week, the state expects to distribute around 90,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccines to just over 500 providers in all 64 parishes. In Livingston Parish, the total number of providers is now at 13.
The Louisiana Department of Health is coordinating the state’s COVID-19 vaccine distribution effort, which is expected to last until summer 2021.
This week’s list of providers includes 168 chain pharmacies, 138 independent pharmacies, 47 hospitals, 45 public health providers, 24 urgent cares, 23 federally qualified health centers, 18 community events, 16 medical practices, 12 rural health clinics, and 10 other healthcare sites.
The Department of Health cannot make appointments for patients; only providers can.
The Department of Health regularly updates its list of participating pharmacies, along with their locations and contact information, on its website: covidvaccine.la.gov. (To find a location near you, click here.)
As of the most recent data, the state has administered 857,963 vaccine doses. Officials are also reporting that 294,232 have completed the two-dose vaccine series.
Frontline hospital workers were the first to receive the vaccine when it was made available in December, followed by the residents and staff of nursing homes, emergency medical services employees, and firefighters.
The state expanded those that can begin receiving their first shots of the COVID-19 vaccine to Group 1B Tier 1. To find out if you’re eligible for a COVID-19, click here.
