Cash for Vaccines is Back in Shreveport
If you haven't yet gotten the jab... the Caddo Parish Commission, The Pines Road Area Business Association, Inc. (PRABA), LA Department of Health and LSU Health have gotten together to hold a COVID Vaccination Clinic and Health Fair on Saturday, August 27, 2022, 10:00am - 2:00pm, at Gracepoint Church of the Nazarene, 6825 Pines Road, Shreveport, 71129.
But in order to get the cash, you have to be quick... The first 150 qualified to be vaccinated will receive a $100.00 gift card. Ages from 5 years and up are eligible to be vaccinated, but anyone aged 5 years to 17 years old must be accompanied by parent or guardian for consent. The first and second Covid shots, and the first booster shot, will be eligible to receive the gift cards only! Also, any persons receiving the gift cards must be Caddo Parish resident.
In addition to the covid vaccines, other health services information will be provided by the Louisiana Department of Public Health, such as WIC Program, required shots for school age children, Monkey Pox information, as well as other health issues may be also available.
Shreveport had a similar program with two sessions scheduled earlier in the summer, but due to the massive response at the session at the Shreveport Farmer's Market in Festival Plaza downtown, they ended up canceling the second event.
