About 50 members of the Tulane community received their first doses of the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine on Tuesday in the J. Bennett Johnston Building. The vaccinations came just days after Tulane was designated as a COVID-19 vaccine distribution site by the Louisiana Department of Health. University members who received their vaccines ranged from physicians to nurses to food service and custodial/operations staff. For more information about the rollout, click here
