Flu vaccination clinic Friday

The Louisiana Department of Health’s (LDH) Office of Public Health (OPH) for Region 7 (Northwest Louisiana) will host drive-thru flu vaccination clinics at Shreveport- and Bossier-area parish health units on Friday, October 28 from noon to 6 p.m. All COVID-19 vaccines, including the COVID-19 bivalent boosters, will be available for anyone ages 6 months and older. 

The clinics will be held at Bossier Parish Health Unit, 3022 Old Minden Road, Bossier City, and Caddo Parish Health Unit, 1035 Creswell Avenue, Shreveport. 

If you have insurance, Medicaid, or Medicare coverage, or are uninsured, the flu vaccines are available at no cost to you. There are no out-of-pocket costs; however, if you have insurance, it will be billed. Bring a valid insurance card with you to your visit and your COVID-19 vaccination card if you have one.  

Region 7 serves the parishes of Bienville, Bossier, Caddo, Claiborne, DeSoto, Natchitoches, Red River, Sabine, and Webster. The Webster Parish Health Unit is currently closed for refurbishments.
