Today is the beginning of your health for tomorrow

CHRISTUS Shreveport-Bossier Health System has joined the COVID-19 Community Vaccine collaborative efforts established by LSU Health Shreveport (School of Medicine).  The collaborative also includes Willis Knighton. CHRISTUS provides vaccine to LSU Health Shreveport, as well as staff, to support this community-wide vaccine effort, which readily administers over 1,000 shots at each clinic event. 

At this time, CHRISTUS is not offering vaccine clinics at CHRISTUS clinics or hospitals. Patients of CHRISTUS are urged to take advantage of this well-organized community program to receive the vaccine. Advance registration through the LSUHSC website is requested. To register for the vaccine or locate information about the clinic dates and locations. Please visit www.lsuhs.edu and click on the vaccine registration box that pops up. 

COVID-19 vaccine is provided by the Louisiana Department of Health (LDH) and it is administered according to LDH guidelines. Visit their website to learn more about the state’s eligibility guidelines and vaccine information.

NOTE: Shreve Memorial Library branches provide computer and internet access for those who need to register for the vaccine. Their staff will provide assistance in person or over the phone. 

We are grateful that you’ve entrusted us with your health and the health of your family. We suggest you have a conversation with your primary care provider regarding when you and your family should get the vaccine and if there will be any other directions you should follow after.

We understand you have questions about the COVID-19 vaccine, so we have answered some of your most frequently asked ones.

Safety First

The safety of our patients, Associates and physicians is our top priority. That’s why we successfully practice infection prevention every day. To keep all who enter our facilities safe during COVID-19 we have added the following precautions:

  • Limiting visitors
  • Screening everyone who comes through our doors
  • Isolating COVID-19 patients to one area of the facility
  • Random temperature checks for Associates
  • Requiring everyone on our campuses to wear masks
  • Using telemedicine to treat active COVID-19 patients, so their caregivers and support staff limit the number of times they enter their rooms

Emergency Care

While COVID-19 is new, our processes and procedures in place for infection prevention and preventing the spread of illness are not. CHRISTUS Health's Emergency Departments are equipped to safely provide care for life-threatening illness and injury – and seeking that care is essential. Do not postpone seeking care if you are urgently ill.  Go to the Emergency Department or call 9-1-1.

I had my triple bypass surgery at CHRISTUS Highland Medical Center and had the best possible experience in that situation, so I knew I wasn’t going anywhere else when I tested positive for COVID-19.
