Governor John Bel Edwards is suggesting Louisiana's largest hospital could stretch the state's first batch of COVID-19 vaccines to more people.

Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center in Baton Rouge was "routinely" getting a sixth dose per vial after getting thousands of vials that were said to have only five doses each.

Edwards said the federal government has authorized hospitals to use the sixth dose.

Other hospitals around the nation have also reported finding the sixth dose.
