BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — Anyone six months and older can get a free COVID-19 vaccine at BREC’s Liberty Lagoon this Saturday, Aug. 20.

Incentives for receiving a vaccination include a free 3-hour waterpark pass to use the same day and a $50 gift card, according to the Louisiana Department of Health (LDH). The event will be taking place from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

“With school back in session, we want to help provide vaccinations to our kids as well as adults to protect everyone in the midst of this sixth surge – especially the younger ones six months and older. The waterpark provides a place where people would naturally gather and feel comfortable. We’re very grateful to our sponsors for helping us to make this possible,” said Region 2 Medical Director, Dr. Paulette Grey Riveria.

Liberty Lagoon is located at 111 Lobdell Avenue.
