COVlD-19 vaccinations through your local school






SWLA Center for Health Services is excited to announce our partnership with Calcasieu Parish School board to provide COVlD-19 vaccinations through your local school. Our goal is to assist school administrators with keeping students, faculty, and staff as healthy as possible. Our vaccination strike Team will provide COVlD-l9 vaccinations to any person ages five and up onsite, via SWLA's mobile unit, at your school's facility. SWLA will coordinate with your school to provide vaccinations only to those faculty, staff, and students (with parental consent) who are interested in receiving the vaccination. The vaccination will be administered by a SWLA nurse practitioner. An SWLA staff member will provide an assessment with the patient 15 minutes after the administration of the vaccine to monitor the patient's reaction.

Parents are welcome to attend the visit with their child. In addition to receiving the vaccination, individuals will be educated on the COVlD-19 vaccination. Each person receiving their vaccination will receive a return appointment card for the administration of the second dose.The SWLA Vaccine Consent form must be fully completed and returned prior to administration of the vaccine to any individual.

SWLA is looking forward to providing this service to your school on March 7& 8.The deadline to return the vaccination packet to your school's office is February 22,2022.
