BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — With coronavirus vaccine supplies growing and immunization appointments going unused, Louisiana will end its limits Monday on which adults can receive the shots, giving access to anyone 16 and older who wants to schedule an appointment.
Gov. John Bel Edwards announced the eligibility change Wednesday, joining a growing list of states throwing open vaccine access to any adult who is interested in a shot. President Joe Biden’s administration wants all states to make every adult eligible for the vaccine by May 1.
