Vaccine Operation at Fairgrounds in Shreveport Shuts Down
Changes are on the way for getting the Covid-19 vaccine in the Shreveport Bossier area.
Starting today, the mobile vaccine clinic for LSU Health Shreveport will be back at the North Campus site on Linwood Ave (the site of the old Chevyland). COVID-19 testing and vaccinations at this location will be available from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
It was moved to the Fairgrounds earlier this month because of long lines, but things have settled down a bit. The operation at the Fairgrounds will no longer be open.
Anyone age 5 and up is eligible to get a COVID-19 vaccine.
1st, 2nd, 3rd doses, and booster shots of the Pfizer vaccine; Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson are available at the Linwood site.
If you got your 1st or 2nd vaccine at a location other than LSU Health Shreveport, please Pre-Register by clicking here to get signed up to make the process easier.
LSUHS has administered more than 117,000 doses of the Covid vaccine in the Shreveport Bossier region.
You will not have to leave your car to get your vaccine.
You do need to bring an ID and insurance information when you show up at the vaccine site. If you don't have insurance, you are still eligible to get the vaccine. There is no out-of-pocket cost to get the vaccine.
