Earlier this week, Gov. John Bel Edwards announced a significant expansion of the state’s COVID-19 vaccination plan.
Under the new additions to Phase 1B, Tier 1 of the COVID-19 Vaccination Plan are individuals 18 years and older (16 years and older for the Pfizer vaccine) who have one of the following conditions:
- Asthma (moderate-to-severe)
- Cerebrovascular (affects blood vessels and blood supply to the brain)
- Chronic kidney disease
- COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)
- Cystic fibrosis
- Heart conditions such as heart failure, coronary artery disease or cardiomyopathies
- Hypertension or high blood pressure
- Immunocompromised state from a solid organ transplant
- Immunocompromised state from blood or bone marrow transplant, immune deficiencies, HIV or use of other immune weakening medicines
- Overweight or obesity (BMI over 25). To find your BMI, visit the CDC BMI calculator.
- Severe neurologic conditions, such as dementia
- Sickle Cell disease
- Type 1 diabetes mellitus
- Type 2 diabetes mellitus
- Chronic liver disease
- Pulmonary fibrosis
- Down syndrome
Several community partners have stepped up to assist with providing the vaccine to our campus community.
Thibodaux Regional Health System is scheduling a vaccination day specifically for Nicholls on March 16 between 12:30 – 4 p.m.. Call 985-493-4335 to schedule an appointment. Faculty, staff and students are welcome.
Life Coast Community Health Center is also offering appointments by calling 985-492-6715. Mention that you are affiliated with Nicholls when you schedule appointments.
We are encouraged by a commitment from our partners at LDH Region 3 and the Louisiana National Guard to hold a large-scale vaccination event on our campus in the coming weeks.
This expansion is a huge step toward our goal toward a return to normal. I encourage everyone to consider receiving the COVID-19 vaccine.
“I work at several area hospitals and getting the COVID-19 vaccine makes me feel better about doing my part to reduce the spread of the virus.”
