“If you haven’t been vaccinated yet, we hope this event will inspire you to take your shot and help our community get back to life and fully reopened,” said Commissioner McCurdy. “The more people who get vaccinated, the faster we can put the pandemic behind us.”

“We continue to work hard to provide unique vaccination experiences that make taking your shot as easy as it is rewarding,” said Commissioner Naft. “Events like this will help us achieve our goal of being one of the safest communities in the United States and providing a significant level of confidence in those who desire to travel to Las Vegas for leisure and business and for those who call Clark County home.”
