DHH officials urge everyone to get a flu vaccination

Starting this week, parish health units around the state began offering flu vaccinations to all Louisiana residents (of age) to be vaccinated.

Until now, flu shots at Louisiana’s parish health units were reserved only for high-risk groups, in order to ensure that those who most needed the vaccine could get a shot. Based on the level of demand from the “high risk” population and the abundance of flu shots being offered at local clinics and pharmacies, the Department of Health and Hospitals is now opening its vaccine to the general public.
