Thrifty Way Pharmacy of Ville Platte joins Reed’s Family Pharmacy of Mamou as a location for the COVID vaccine in Evangeline Parish.
The Louisiana Department of Health is coordinating the COVID-19 vaccine distribution effort in Louisiana. As more vaccines become available from the CDC, more individuals and groups will be offered a vaccination.

These vaccines are available only for:
Persons ages 70 years or older in the community,
Outpatient clinic providers and clinic staff,
