BATON ROUGE - The Louisiana Department of Health said it agrees with the CDC's recommendation that children 6 months and up can be safely vaccinated for COVID.
LDH issued the following statement Saturday:
The Louisiana Department of Health (LDH) welcomes the recommendation by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to begin administering the COVID vaccine to all children ages 6 months and up.
