COVID-19 Update

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
February 4, 2021

The Southern Nevada Health District has notified people who made first dose appointments at the Las Vegas Convention Center Second Dose Clinic that their appointments have been canceled. As a result, they will be able to provide vaccine to second dose walk-in patients for the next four weeks. Walk-in patients who are eligible this week received their first dose of Moderna vaccine between January 4-9, 2021. Patients will be served based on vaccine availability. Each week’s walk-in eligibility will be reserved for patients who received the Moderna vaccine at a Health District or partner clinic no sooner than 28 days prior. A list of community partners is available at https://covid.southernnevadahealthdistrict.org/vaccine/second-dose/.

People who received their vaccine from another provider or who received Pfizer vaccine are not eligible to receive the vaccine on a walk-in basis at this time. The Convention Center Clinic site is located in the C-1 area of the facility’s Central Hall. The site is open Tuesday through Saturday, and walk-ins will be served from 8:30 a.m. through 2 p.m., or based on vaccine availability.

The Health District is currently notifying people who registered and received the first dose of COVID-19 vaccine with its original registration system as they are eligible to receive the vaccine and based on the recommended intervals for getting the second dose. Additional notifications for people vaccinated in January will be emailed today. People who get an email will receive a link to register for a second dose appointment.

If the Health District does not have email addresses for people who were able to obtain the vaccine without going through our appointment system, or they have incorrect email addresses for people, they can use the publicly available link: https://www.snhd.info/get-vaccine/lvccc. Second dose vaccine supplies are received based on the number of first doses administered, and the Health District has the capacity to vaccinate everyone who received their first dose at one of its clinics.

People with questions, or who need assistance making appointments, can call the Health District at 702-759-1900. The line is staffed during business hours, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

For the sites of current Health District and partner PODS (points of distribution), go to www.snhd.info/covid. Appointments are available three days in advance, depending on vaccine availability. People who work at a large organization should also check with their organization for their vaccination plans.
