Beginning earlier this week week, Louisiana received the first doses of Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine.

There are an extremely limited number of vaccines being made available; they will be made available at approximately 100 pharmacies across the state.

In Ouachita Parish, four pharmacies have received the vaccine. They are:

• Brookshires Pharmacy #034: (318) 340-6470, 1801 N. 18th St. in Monroe

• Parkway Pharmacy: (318) 812-2305, 10374 Hwy 165 North in Sterlington

• RxONE St. Francis: (318) 966-7242, 309 Jackson St. in Monroe

• Super 1 Pharmacy #602: (318) 325-3142, 2907 Cypress St. in West Monroe

These vaccines will be available only for people who are 70-years-old or older, ambulatory/outpatient care personnel, people being treated for end-stage renal disease, schools of allied health students/residents/staff, and home agency patients and personnel.

Eligible patients must contact a participating pharmacy and make an appointment at the pharmacy. Patients who arrive without an appointment will not be vaccinated.
