Department of Health | State of Louisiana

All Louisiana children ages 6 months and up are now eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, following the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) accepting the recommendation of its Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorization of the three-dose Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine and the two-dose Moderna vaccine.

The Louisiana Department of Health (LDH) welcomes the recommendation by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration to begin offering the COVID vaccine to all children ages 6 months and up.

This is a virtual session bringing together Louisianans who have engaged in COVID-19 outreach, education, and vaccination efforts to share what has worked and not worked, discuss best practices, and ideas for the future.

Dr. Paulette Grey Riveria, regional medical director for the Louisiana Department of Health's Capital Region Office of Public Health, recently recognized the Louisiana National Guard for its service during the COVID-19 pandemic.
