Staff Report
The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine will be available at Lamar-Dixon Expo Center in Gonzales.

Beginning Monday, Ascension Parish will be providing Pfizer COVID-19 vaccinations at the Lamar-Dixon Expo Center in Gonzales.

The free vaccinations will be offered during a six-week timeline, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays, until June 5.

Everyone aged 16 years and older is eligible to receive this vaccine. “Walk ins” are welcome, but those wishing to preregister can do so online at: https://laredcap.oph.dhh.la.gov/surveys/?s=EP34HFE77F. Complete the form, then choose Lamar Dixon as your site.

These vaccines are available thanks to an extra allocation to the capitol region from the federal government. The program is being administered by the Louisiana Department of Health, and logistics are coordinated by the Louisiana National Guard and Lamar-Dixon Expo Center. The vaccines will be administered by Prime Occupational Medicine.
