Mayor Broome Announces High School COVID-19 Vaccine Initiative

Baton Rouge, La. — May 3, 2021 — Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome, East Baton Rouge Parish School System Superintendent Dr. Sito Narcisse, Louisiana Department of Health, and Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Health Centers in Schools announced today the Bring Back School Fun COVID-19 vaccine initiative. Students 16 years of age and older will have the opportunity to receive a free Pfizer vaccine at participating schools in East Baton Rouge Parish with the consent of their parents or guardians.

“We have truly come a long way since vaccine distribution began, but we also must recognize we have some ways to go in our effort to bring back the Baton Rouge we know and love,” said Mayor Broome. “Our youth want to make a return back to campus to see their friends, their teachers, and their community. We can help ensure this happens as safely as possible.”

“This past school year looked very different. We were able to adapt to the times, practice social distancing, and educate students through computer screens, but the loss of those in-person interactions has been greatly missed. It is time that we bring back the fun to our campuses!” said Dr. Narcisse. “Whether it’s a sold-out theatre performance, a pep rally, a packed gymnasium, school proms and graduations — our students and families deserve to be able to experience those traditional and momentous occasions.”

Participating schools include:

  • Northdale Magnet Academy
  • Northeast High School
  • Liberty Magnet High School
  • Broadmoor Senior High School
  • Glen Oaks Magnet High School
  • McKinley High School
  • Scotlandville Magnet High School
  • Baton Rouge Magnet High School
