NEW ORLEANS (press release) – New Orleans Hospitality SAFE is partnering with Dickie Brennan’s Tableau, Love Your City and the New Orleans Business Alliance to host a COVID-19 vaccination event on Tuesday, April 13. The event will take place in the heart of the French Quarter at Dickie Brennan’s Tableau.
Ochsner Health will provide the Johnson & Johnson vaccination. This is the single dose vaccine and will not require a follow up appointment.
This vaccine effort is specifically available to the New Orleans hospitality industry workforce, which is a broad community of front line employees and management, as well as vendors and other business partners who support the hospitality industry. This vaccination effort is open to any and all who are involved in the hospitality industry, including furloughed employees.
“The New Orleans Business Alliance is delighted to be a partner on this incredibly important initiative! From our work on the Gig Economy Workers Relief Fund, to our current support of the NOLA SAFE Vaccination event, it has been important for NOLABA to ensure that economic development translates into ensuring that the local economy reopens safely and that those residents who make the New Orleans experience are safe, and more importantly, feel safe, as they get back to what they do best: show the world that no place is warmer and more welcoming than New Orleans. Kudos to NOLA SAFE and our other partners for getting more shots into arms,” said Quentin Messer, Jr., President and CEO of the NOLABA.
“We are excited to work with such important community partners as Ochsner Health, LifeCity, Dickie Brennan’s Tableau, and the New Orleans Business Alliance to bring the COVID-19 vaccine directly to the area where so many members of our hospitality workforce are employed,” said Joey Worley, founder and owner of New Orleans Hospitality SAFE.
Attendees are encouraged to make an appointment ahead of time. Walk-ins will be welcome, as long as vaccine inventory permits. Participants should bring a form of photo identification such as a driver’s license, state identification card, or passport. Insurance is not required to receive the vaccine. Vaccinations are free.
This is a free event for the hospitality workforce. Event time is 7:30 a.m. – 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 13.
