ALEXANDRIA, La. (WNTZ) – Louisiana State University at Alexandria will host a Louisiana National Guard Covid-19 vaccination drive on Tuesday, 19 October and Wednesday, 20 October. The Guard will provide both Pfizer and Moderna vaccines TO THE PUBLIC from 9 am to 3 pm in Mulder Hall on LSUA’s campus.

The LDH states, “Our best pathway out of the pandemic is a one-two punch of masking and getting the vaccine. Join the more than 200 million Americans who have already rolled up their sleeves and gotten vaccinated. It’s free. It’s convenient. It’s safe and effective. The highly transmissible Delta variant continues to circulate throughout the state. We need many more residents to get their shots so we can all stay safe and help prevent the next surge.”
