BATON ROUGE - Mass vaccination events are appearing across Louisiana as state health officials continue to work alongside the public in providing citizens in every parish with access to COVID-19 vaccines.

The campuses involved include Southern University and A&M College, Southern University at New Orleans, Southern University Shreveport, Southern University Law Center and Southern University Agricultural Research and Extension Center.
During the events, the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine will be available free of charge to all individuals 16 and older from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
