A community health fair was held Wednesday in New Iberia.

The event, which was held as a drive-thru, took place at the Iberia Comprehensive Community Health Center on Jefferson Terrace Blvd.

The fair is part of National Health Center Week, which runs until August 14 and raises awareness about the mission and accomplishments of health centers nationwide. More information on the initiative can be found here.

From 3 p.m. - 5 p.m., residents had the chance to receive information about health resources in the community. COVID-19 testing and vaccines were also available.

Organizers distributed school supplies to the younger citizens in attendance.

"Normally it's a pedestrian health fair but with COVID last year we had to cancel, this year we're having just a drive thru," explained Michelle Meche with ICCHC. "Resources in the community, the folks can come and drive through, get information, get goodies. We're also offering COVID vaccines and COVID testing here today."
