LAS VEGAS – The Southern Nevada Health District will host an immunization clinic at its North Las Vegas public health center from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m., Saturday, March 29, 1820 E. Lake Mead Blvd., Suite F, North Las Vegas. This is one of several rotating Saturday immunization clinics scheduled through April. Childhood and pre-teen immunizations will be available.
Earlier this year, the State Board of Health implemented new regulations that require all seventh graders to be immunized against Bordetella pertussis; the regulations take effect for the upcoming 2008-09 academic school year. The Southern Nevada Health District provides the TdaP vaccine (tetanus-diphtheria-pertussis) to meet that requirement.
Parents must bring immunization records. Children with no immunization records will have to begin the immunization sequence from the beginning. Non-custodial adults may accompany a child, however, written consent must be provided to the health district from the parent or guardian at the time of service. An administrative fee of $16 per patient for one immunization or $25 per patient for two or more immunizations will be collected. Some vaccines might require an additional fee.
For information, contact the Southern Nevada Health District’s immunization office, (702) 759-0850 or visit www.SouthernNevadaHealthDistrict.org.
The Saturday clinics will be held:
- March 29: 9 a.m. – 2 p.m., North Las Vegas Public Health Center, 1820 E. Lake Mead Blvd., Suite F, North Las Vegas
- April 12: 9 a.m. – 2 p.m., Henderson Public Health Center, 520 E. Lake Mead Parkway, Henderson

- April 26: 9 a.m. – 2 p.m., Ravenholt Public Health Center, 625 Shadow Lane, Las Vegas. This clinic will include a health fair as part of National Children’s Immunization Week.
The Nevada State Board of Health also enacted immunization regulations for college students. Freshmen younger than 24 years of age who will reside in on-campus housing at a Nevada college or university are now required to receive the immunization against Neisseria meningiditis (Meningococcus). The health district provides the vaccine to meet this requirement.
