More doses of the COVID-19 vaccine are en route to Louisiana.

According to the Louisiana Department of Health, 406 vaccine providers in all 64 parishes of the state will receive more of the vaccine this week. However, LDH says those providers will receive "very limited doses" of the vaccine.

LDH says the providers receiving the vaccine include chain pharmacies, independent pharmacies, hospitals, community health centers, rural clinics, and other healthcare sites. State officials say the providers who receive the vaccine doses must make the vaccine available to anyone who is eligible to receive it.
