Vaccine Update

As of September 3, more than 72.61 percent of people 18 years of age and older in Clark County have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, and more than 67.65 percent of people eligible (people ages 12 and over) have also received at least one dose of the vaccine. Additionally, more than 59.38 percent of adults in Clark County are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. The total number of COVID-19 vaccine doses administered in Clark County 2,368,155. Additional vaccination information is available at www.snhd.info/covid-cases.

The Health District is encouraging everyone to get vaccinated and emphasizing:

  • The COVID-19 vaccines continue to be highly effective at protecting people against severe illness and death, including disease caused by Delta and other variants circulating in Clark County.
  • Getting vaccinated is the best way to slow the spread of COVID-19 and prevent more variants from developing.
  • No vaccine is 100 percent effective, and breakthrough infections among vaccinated people are expected.
  • Because vaccines are not 100 percent effective, as the number of people who are fully vaccinated goes up, the number of breakthrough cases will also increase.

Case Updates

Today, the Health District is reporting 306,149 cases of COVID-19 in Clark County, an increase of 748 since yesterday. The Health District is also reporting 10 deaths bringing the total to 5,265. Additional information about COVID-19 cases is available at www.snhd.info/covid-case.
