Here's Where To Get A COVID-19 Vaccine If You're A Teacher
With Louisiana receiving a higher number of vaccine doses from the federal government and the governor’s recent eligibility expansion, the Greater New Orleans area will host several vaccination events this coming weekend.
In Orleans Parish, many schools are holding their own site specific events, but a number of upcoming events are open to all teachers and in some cases individuals in other eligibility groups.

Ochsner Health Vaccine Drive-Thru
Shrine on Airline, 6000 Airline Drive, Metairie
Ochsner Health and Jefferson Parish will host a mass vaccination event, distributing more than 2,700 doses of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine.
Sign up for a vaccine appointment through Ochsner’s online portal or by calling 844-888-2772. Call center hours are from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Photo ID and insurance cards are not required, but will help speed up the registration process. Teachers should bring their employee ID.
