The Pelicans received their vaccines through a partnership with a local hospital and in consultation with team doctors and officials.

On Tuesday, Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards expanded eligibility for the COVID-19 vaccine, allowing anyone 16 or older with a health condition that may result in a higher risk of disease to get the vaccine. Read more from ESPN.
