Vaccine for Health Care Professionals

Immunization services are available by appointment only at most of our public health centers. Please call (702) 759-0850 to schedule. Our main location at 280 S. Decatur Blvd. is accepting walk-in clients. To meet social distancing standards, we are limiting the number of people inside the clinics. Only one parent or guardian is allowed with a minor. You may be asked to wait outside or in your car if waiting room capacity is reached. Everyone must wear a mask while inside our buildings and clinics. We encourage everyone to bring a mask with them at the time of the visit. If you do not have a mask, one will be provided for you.
