The Louisiana Department of Health’s (LDH) Office of Public Health (OPH) Region 2 (Capital Area) will host a flu vaccination clinic on November 14 to ensure Louisianans have access to the flu vaccine. Getting vaccinated with the flu vaccine is the best way to protect yourself and your family against influenza (flu).
