SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) — The 39th annual Let the Good Times Roll Juneteenth Festival, LSU Health Sciences – Shreveport, and Democrat Senator Gregory Tarver have partnered together to host a COVID-19 vaccine drive.
According to the office of Senator Tarver, the collaboration comes as Sen. Tarver is boosting efforts to vaccinate citizens in his district to mitigate the risk of COVID-19.
“We want to make receiving the COVID-19 vaccine as easy and convenient as possible, and this partnership does just that,” Senator Tarver said in a released statement Thursday.
