LAS VEGAS – Based on clinic capacity, the Southern Nevada Health District is making additional first dose appointments available at Cashman Center today, Thursday, February 25 and tomorrow, Friday, February 26, for those currently eligible to receive the vaccine. Appointments can be scheduled on the Health District website at https://covid.southernnevadahealthdistrict.org/vaccine/distribution/. Eligible groups include people 65 years of age and older, health care workers, and those in the public safety and security and frontline community support groups.
Second dose appointments are also available at Cashman Center. People who were vaccinated at a Health District or partner clinic and received the Pfizer vaccine at least 21 days prior or the Moderna vaccine at least 28 prior are eligible. The first dose of the vaccine starts building protection from the virus that causes COVID-19. The second dose is needed to get the most protection the vaccine has to offer. It is important that everyone is fully vaccinated with both doses of the vaccines.
A state administered call center is available to answer questions and assist those who may need help making appointments. The call center is open seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at 1-800-401-0946. The Health District also continues to urge people to cancel appointments if they have made more than one. In addition to the call center, people can email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance canceling appointments.
