RAW: Chief Administrative Officer for Willis-Knighton Health System talks about vaccine partnership

“I think this is just a great collaborative effort. One of the things that we have in the Shreveport-Bossier community is great healthcare, whether that’s here at Willis-Knighton or LSU Health or CHRISTUS, and coming together and those three entities joining together to make sure the vaccines are available, readily accessible, easily accessible only made too much sense,” he said.

He thinks the overall vaccine process is going well.

“The vaccine is the key to making sure we don’t lose more lives unnecessarily to this devastating virus that has consumed our country and community,” said Crawford.
