Appointments are required available by calling 702-293-9256.

The line will be open Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

"This is the chance for the residents of this great community to protect themselves from this deadly pandemic, as well as protect their families, friends and neighbors," said Boulder City Mayor Kiernan McManus. "We cannot move forward and get back to normal as long as the cases continue to climb and more of our loved ones are lost to this virus."
