Vaccine Update

Thursday, March 12, 2021; 1:27 p.m.

Dear LSU Community,

The state of Louisiana has offered to partner with us to set up a community-wide mass vaccination site at LSU on Sunday, March 14, beginning at 8 a.m. for those who are currently eligible to receive the vaccine according to the state’s priority tiers.

The state will bring 800 doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine to campus for this effort and vaccines will be given by appointment only. If you are not yet eligible to receive the vaccine, or if you are unable to schedule an appointment for Sunday, please note that there will be other opportunities to receive the vaccine on campus in the near future, and we will keep you informed of those.

If you have pre-registered for the vaccine through LSU, and if you meet the state’s current eligibility requirements to receive the vaccine now, you should have already received an email from LSU with a link to schedule an appointment. Don’t forget to check your “junk” or “spam” folders if you don’t see the email in your inbox, or visit dhh.la.gov. Please schedule your appointment as soon as possible, as the available time slots will fill up quickly.

Alternately, those who are eligible can check ldh.la.gov/covidvaccine-locations for other opportunities to receive the vaccine around the state.

If you have pre-registered to receive the vaccine through LSU but did not receive an email to schedule an appointment for Sunday, it means that you do not yet meet the state’s eligibility requirements, based on the information you provided in the pre-registration survey. However, be assured that you are still on our list to receive the vaccine and will be notified as soon as a vaccine is available for you.

If you have not yet pre-registered to receive the vaccine at LSU, please use the COVID-19 Vaccine Preregistration website.

Once you receive the COVID-19 vaccine, either at LSU or elsewhere, please complete the Vaccination Reporting Survey so we can keep track of how many vaccines are still needed on campus.
