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)
  • Cancer
  • 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
  • Smoking
  • Type 1 diabetes mellitus
  • Type 2 diabetes mellitus
  • Chronic liver disease
  • Pulmonary fibrosis
  • Thalassemia
  • 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.”
