BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Starting Friday, the public can get a COVID-19 vaccine at a new major Community Vaccination Center (CVC) in Baton Rouge.

West Feliciana explains how it approached getting vaccine shots in arms

This comes after the White House announced that the Administration would be partnering with the State of Louisiana to build a vaccine site at the Bon Carre Business Center in Baton Rouge. The address is 7359 Florida Blvd. The site will administer around 3,000 shots in arms a day or 21,000 doses per week.

“I believe that we were selected as a mass vaccination site because of our work with the Louisiana Department of Health, our intentionality around closing health disparities,” said Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome.
