Is COVID-19 Vaccination Right For You?

Is COVID-19 Vaccination Right For You?

Do your research.

Both the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) websites are useful. Never agree to a medical procedure until you are fully informed of the risks and benefits. Speak with your personal health care provider to help you decide if vaccination is right for you, or contact North Oaks Chief Medical Officer Robert Peltier, MD at (985) 230-6647 or via email.

Check your eligibility.

Louisiana Department of Health (LDH) will expand eligibility in phases, so check the LDH website for updates.

Schedule an appointment online or by phone in advance.

Check our COVID-19 page, “mynorthoaks” on social media, your physician’s office and the Louisiana Department of Health (LDH) for updates on vaccine availability. Click here to view participating locations.

Be patient; initial vaccine supplies are limited.

Public health officials are working daily to distribute more vaccine statewide.

While you wait, continue to follow public health measures like masking, handwashing and social distancing to keep your family and community safe.

When COVID hospitalizations increase, fewer beds and resources are available for other health care emergencies, like car crashes or heart attacks.

Individuals with COVID-19 symptoms or concerns should contact their primary care provider or the North Oaks COVID-19 Screening Line at (985) 230-2778 for evaluation.
