SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – LSU Health Shreveport has announced its northwest Louisiana COVID-19 vaccine schedule through April 24.

Eligible Louisiana residents include individuals age 16 and older. However, people age 16 and 17 are only eligible to receive the Pfizer vaccine; people who are age 18 and older may receive either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine.
