ST. LANDRY EMS has announced that they are now offering mobile COVID-19 vaccinations.

In this new pilot program for St. Landry Parish, ST. LANDRY EMS says they will drive to a patient’s location and administer their dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Officials say the new service will benefit those that are home-bound, without available transportation, or those avoiding contact with others due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In this program, patients will contact ST. LANDRY EMS directly (337-948-8404) to schedule their appointments. ST. LANDRY EMS will then arrive at the scheduled time, administer the vaccine, and schedule a second dosage when appropriate.

“This is yet another example of how we are committed to our local community and willing to go the extra mile to ensure the safety and health of our friends and neighbors," ST. LANDRY EMS CEO Steven Quebedeaux said.
