The Health District encourages everyone 12 years of age and older to get vaccinated. COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective at preventing people from getting sick. People who are fully vaccinated can start doing activities they did prior to the pandemic. More information about current recommendations is available on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends COVID-19 vaccination for everyone 12 years of age and older. The Pfizer vaccine is authorized for use in adolescents 12 to 15 years of age. The vaccine has been found to be safe and highly effective at preventing illness in this age group, and Health District and partner clinic information can be accessed at www.snhd.info/covid-vaccine. Additional COVID-19 vaccine clinic information can be found online at www.NVCOVIDFighter.org. The site also features live chat support to make scheduling a COVID-19 vaccine appointment and getting information about the vaccine more accessible.

Children under the age of 18 must also have written consent from a parent or guardian at the time of services. The Health District’s policy is available on its website at www.snhd.info/covid-consent.

The Health District continues to stress the importance of everyone getting the COVID-19 vaccine. Younger adults and children with COVID-19 may have mild or even no symptoms, but some will get severely ill and even require hospitalization. They can also spread the virus to those who may be more at risk for complications from the illness. Vaccinations are critical to stopping this pandemic, and the more people who are vaccinated the better they will work.

As of July 6, 2,023,362 doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered in Clark County. Additional information and resources are available on the Health District website at www.snhd.info/covid.
