Given the low vaccination rates in Central Louisiana, the rising case rates and the recommendations for post-exposure testing, the Office of Public Health is providing COVID vaccination and testing Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at all locations, according to Dr. David J. Holcombe, Regional Administrator/Medical Director for Region 6.

There is no pre-registration or out-of-pocket expenses for either vaccination or testing.

All sites provide all three vaccines: Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson (Janssen). 

On-site PCR testing is available as well as BINAX testing.
