SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - The COVID-19 vaccination hub at the Louisiana State Fair Grounds will no longer operate after Saturday, April 24, that’s according to Dr. John Vanchiere.

The LSUHS North Campus location (former Chevyland dealership) at 2627 Linwood Avenue will be the main hub moving forward.

Dr. Vanchiere said only around 200 people are going to the fairgrounds to receive their shot each day, so they have to go where the people are. The closing is also due in part to the State Fair of Louisiana coming to the fairgrounds.

The site at the fairgrounds will be open until Saturday from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m.

The site at LSUHS North Campus will be open Friday, April 23 from 12 p.m. until 5 p.m. Starting on Monday, April 26, this location will be open to the public Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m.
