BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – Starting on Wednesday, August 18, the East Baton Rouge Council on Aging is making one change to how it delivers food.

EBRCOA is transitioning “to ‘Grab & Go’ lunches for all of our senior centers and congregate meal centers.”

This is being done because of the fourth COVID-19 surge.

EBRCOA is hoping this will minimize the risk that staff or seniors contract the virus.

On Thursday, August 19, EBRCOA is giving seniors who are immunocompromised the chance to get the third COVID-19 dose or booster shot as it is also known.

There will be 200 doses available at this event, 100 Pfizer and 100 Moderna vaccines.

If you are interested in attending the COVID-19 Vaccine Booster Shot Clinic, details on when and where can be found below:

  • 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at The Lotus Center (1701 Main Street)

You can register for the COVID-19 Booster Vaccine here.
