Ochsner Health has partnered with Governor Edwards and the Louisiana Department of Health (LDH) to bring the COVID-19 vaccine to our community.

Vaccinations are currently available, by appointment only, for the following groups:

Patients 70 and older

Patients who are on dialysis

Ambulatory healthcare workers

Schools of allied health employees and faculty

Unfortunately, walk-ins are not accepted at this time. Due to the limited number of vaccines, appointments are created as doses become available.

Ochsner Patients who meet these criteria, please visit for more information on how to schedule an appointment.

Non-Ochsner patients who meet these criteria can schedule vaccine appointments at one of our designated retail pharmacies. Details can be found at and appointments can be made by calling 1-844-888-2772.

Patients may experience longer wait times when using the MyOchsner website or COVID hotline.

As eligibility expands, patients will be contacted and community members via email about how and when they can schedule appointments to receive the vaccine.
