Sen. Barrow helps residents get COVID-19 vaccine in North Baton Rouge

BATON ROUGE, La. - State Senator Regina Barrow says she is still trying to overcome the heartache of losing her husband of 36 years to COVID-19 in December 2020.

Senator Barrow visited Our Lady of the Lake (OLOL) North Baton Rouge on Thursday, Jan. 7 to help get eligible patients vaccinated.

“If this is a way to help people avoid having to go down there or go through that process I’m encouraging folks to do what is necessary to not have to go through that was not easy I feel very painful you know I’m still waiting for my husband to come home but then I realized that he’s never coming back again,” Barrow says.

Senator Barrow thanked health care workers at the OLOL North Baton Rouge clinic.

Staff at the clinic administered 50 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine to eligible patients.
