COVID-19 Vaccination | COVID-19 Booster Shots

Am I eligible for a booster shot?

Follow the latest guidance from the CDC to determine if you are eligible for a booster shot. 

What are updated boosters?

The updated boosters are called “updated” because they protect against both the original virus that causes COVID-19 and the Omicron variant BA.4 and BA.5. Two COVID-19 vaccine manufacturers, Pfizer and Moderna, have developed updated COVID-19 boosters. Learn more from the CDC.

Where can I get my booster shot?

Please visit our COVID-19 vaccine page to find a site nearest you. 

COVID-19 Vaccination

I need help finding a vaccination site. What resources can I use?

You can schedule an appointment for your vaccine through any provider or facility you prefer. We highly recommend you use the VaccineFinder, a free online service that searches locations that offer vaccination near your zip code. The Louisiana Department of Health has also provided a list of all vaccine locations organized by parish.

What are the benefits of being vaccinated?

We refer you to the Benefits of Getting a COVID-19 Vaccine | CDC for a summary of the benefits of COVID-19 vaccination based on current scientific data. The biggest benefit of being fully vaccinated is the significantly greater protection against severe illness and death from COVID-19 compared to those who are unvaccinated.
