LDH hosting free vaccination event at Liberty Lagoon

The Louisiana Department of Health (LDH) announced it is hosting a free COVID-19 vaccination event on Aug. 20 at Liberty Lagoon in Baton Rouge.

The event is from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. for anyone six months or older.

Anyone who is vaccinated will get a free three-hour pass to the waterpark that day and a $50 gift card while supplies last.

LDH will administer first and second shots and booster shots.

“With school back in session, we want to help provide vaccinations to our kids as well as adults to protect everyone in the midst of this sixth surge, especially the younger ones six months and older,” said Region 2 Medical Director Dr. Paulette Grey Riveria in a news release. “The waterpark provides a place where people would naturally gather and feel comfortable.”

The CDC and LDH recommend that everyone ages six months and up get vaccinated against COVID-19 and everyone ages 5 and up get a booster as soon as they are eligible.
