As COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations and deaths continue to surge among unvaccinated individuals, Gov. John Bel Edwards is calling upon all Louisianans to take action to slow the spread of COVID-19 in the state by getting their vaccine if they have not yet done so or by helping their family, friends and neighbors get the shot. Vaccines are available to everyone ages 12 and older.
