"Now, with it being 16 and over, it's not uncommon to see groups of families come through here all together at the same time to get vaccinated," said Travis Haldeman, a Clark County Fire Department engineer who manages the site. "Making it a real big family affair."

Cashman Center is open as a vaccine site from Tuesday through Saturday.
