The 39th annual Let the Good Times Roll Juneteenth Festival has partnered with LSU Health Sciences – Shreveport and Senator Gregory Tarver, D-Shreveport, to coordinate a COVID-19 vaccine drive.
The collaboration comes as Sen. Tarver is boosting efforts to vaccinate citizens in his district to mitigate the risk of COVID-19.
Sen. Tarver said, “We want to make receiving the COVID-19 vaccine as easy and convenient as possible, and this partnership does just that. Folks can go celebrate African American history and get the shot at the same time. It is a win-win in my book.”
The festival, which is taking place June 18 -20, is presented by Rho Omega and Friends and highlights African American culture, music, art, fashion and unity. To learn more about the largest Juneteenth celebration in the south, please visit http://rhoomega.com/.
