Following expanded eligibility criteria, we are now offering scheduling for new first dose appointments in limited quantities at select locations on a first come, first serve basis. Visit MyOchsner to schedule.
Effective Monday, February 22, the Louisiana COVID-19 vaccine eligibility criteria now includes people ages 55-64 with one of the CDC-listed medical conditions, daycare and K-12 teachers and support staff, and all pregnant women. Those who are eligible will be required to attest that they meet criteria and provide proof if asked. In addition, during registration, signature will be required on the state form for criteria confirmation. A full list of the criteria can be found at covidvaccine.la.gov.
We continue to reschedule appointments that were previously cancelled via text, MyOchsner or email as additional vaccine becomes available, and second doses are guaranteed.
We are now offering scheduling for new first dose appointments in limited quantities at select locations on a first come, first serve basis. MyOchsner users can check availability and schedule their vaccinations via MyOchsner. If you don’t have a MyOchsner account, you can sign up at my.Ochsner.org or call 1-844-888-2772 for available locations and times. Once available vaccine slots are filled, you will no longer be able to see the option to book.
Appointments must remain on the schedule and cannot be moved to a different day, time or location. As eager as we are to vaccinate as many patients as possible, we are unable to accept walk-ins at this time and you must have a scheduled appointment to receive a vaccine.
We encourage community members to visit this webpage for updates on scheduling availability or sign up for our vaccine update emails at ochsner.org/covidvaccine.
We appreciate your willingness to be part of the solution as we work together to end this pandemic. Please continue to wear a mask, practice social distancing, maintain good hand hygiene and avoid gathering with individuals outside of your household.
El Dr. Leonardo Seoane, pulmonólogo, intensivista y director académico de Ochsner Health, anima a la comunidad hispana a recibir la vacuna contra el COVID-19 cuando esté disponible.
“Como médico, confió plenamente en la seguridad y eficacia de la vacuna y entiendo lo importante que es para todos poder tener la oportunidad de recibir la vacuna. Por eso mismo me ofrecí como voluntario para ser uno de los primeros en ser vacunado” dijo, el Dr. Seoane.
