With reported new COVID infections reaching a third-highest single day record in Louisiana yesterday, BRAC has aggregated the names of free or nominal cost on-site vaccination programs for businesses of any size to host on-site vaccinations for their employees or for a group of neighboring businesses. We have heard many examples of unvaccinated employees being motivated to get vaccinated when it is made easy and even more accessible during regular work hours. For that reason, we wanted to make it simpler for employers to know who to call or email to set up an on-site event. Listed below are the direct points of contact that will arrange for your business, or group of businesses, to host on-site vaccinations.

Tips for on-site vaccination programs
- Plan to pre-register staff who are interested to give your vendor a count for how many vaccinations to anticipate
- Have a conference room indoors, or an area for a mobile unit or tent outside, where the vax team can set up for the time required
- Vaccination efforts with at least 20-25 people will create more productive uses of time. Partnering with other nearby businesses for their employees to have access can help boost participation.
