COVID-19 Vaccine Boosters

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has updated its recommendations for the Moderna booster, shortening the 6 month interval between completing the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine series and receiving a booster dose to 5 months. 

COVID-19 Testing

LDH now recommends everyone, regardless of vaccination status, get tested if they believe they may have been exposed to COVID-19. COVID-19 testing sites can be found in towns, cities and communities throughout Louisiana. You can get tested at doctor’s offices, clinics, pharmacies, parish health units and many other locations.

Kids Vaccines

LDH and CDC recommend all children ages 5 and older be vaccinated for COVID-19. To find a vaccination location near you or get your questions answered, we encourage you to speak with your child’s pediatrician, call 211, or call the COVID-19 Vaccine Hotline at 1-855-453-0774 to be connected with a medical professional.
