BATON ROUGE, La. (Great Health Divide) - The first week of May marks National Small Business Week, which means there’s a push to get people out in the community and into local Baton Rouge businesses.
Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome also launched the Certified Geaux Get Vaccinated Businesses program to raise awareness for the Community Vaccination Center. It’s also supporting local restaurants to further incentivize getting a COVID-19 vaccine.
When you show your “I Got the Shot” vaccination stickers and immunization cards from the Community Vaccination Center, you can unlock discounts at participating businesses.

Great Health Divide is an initiative addressing health disparities in the Mississippi Delta and Appalachia funded in part by the Google News Initiative.
