The Louisiana Department of Health is providing no-cost vaccinations to the Lake Charles community. This effort began on Wednesday, Sept. 2 and continues through Friday, Sept. 4.

The vaccinations are administered by public health nurses from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. through Friday, Sept 4th. at 113 W. McNeese St., Lake Charles, at the intersection of West McNeese Street and University Drive.

The following vaccinations are being provided:

Please bring identification with you to the vaccination site.

It is important to get vaccinated for tetanus if you have not been vaccinated during the past 10 years.

Louisiana is currently experiencing an ongoing outbreak of Hepatitis A, therefore Hepatitis A vaccination is recommended for those at high risk and also anyone interested in reducing their risk of infection from Hepatitis A.


Hepatitis B vaccine is also recommended for anyone who performs direct patient care, routinely comes into contact with blood or other bodily fluids or those interested in reducing their risk from infection.

Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions or concerns.
