SUSLA a part of Southern University’s April 10 statewide vaccination event


BATON ROUGE, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – Southern University’s Shreveport Campus will be part of a statewide COVID-19 vaccination event that will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday in the SUSLA gym at 3050 Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive.

This mass vaccination event is part of the Southern University System’s “Don’t Wait. Vaccinate!” campaign that encourages Black and other racial minority groups to get vaccinated against COVID-19. 

The campaign is a response to disappointing data that continues to reveal that ethnic minorities, who are disproportionately affected, are not getting vaccinated at a rate large enough to overcome this global pandemic.

Joining Southern are the Southern University Alumni Federation, more than 100 faith-based individuals and associations, as well as civic, fraternal and social organizations. 

The grassroots, research-based campaign strives to engage Southern University alumni and other stakeholders across all 64 Louisiana parishes.

The System also aims to provide resources and content area experts from relevant programs across its five campuses. For more information about the campaign and events, go to
