People 65 years of age and older are now eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine in Clark County and the Southern Nevada Health District has added walk-in opportunities at Cashman Center and Desert Pines High School COVID-19 vaccine clinics for people in this group to get their first dose of the Pfizer vaccine.
Walk-ins are available on a first-come, first-served basis, as well as clinic capacity.
Cashman Center, 850 N. Las Vegas Blvd., Exhibit Hall B, Las Vegas, NV 89101
500 walk-in slots are available each day beginning Feb. 18, Feb. 19 and Feb. 20 starting at 8 a.m. until clinic capacity is reached.
Walk-ins for Pfizer second dose vaccine are available today through Saturday at Cashman for individuals who received their first dose here.
Desert Pines, 3800 E. Harris Ave., Las Vegas, NV 89110
300 walk-in slots are available Feb. 18 and Feb. 19 starting at 9 a.m. until clinic capacity is reached.
In addition, walk-ins for Pfizer second dose vaccine are available today and Feb. 19 at the Desert Pines High School clinic for individuals who received their first dose at a Southern Nevada Health District or community partner clinic.
People who received their first dose of the Moderna vaccine and had their appointments rescheduled due to the vaccine shipment delays, will still receive their second doses within the timeframes recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
It is recommended that the second dose of vaccine should be administered as close to the 21 and 28 day intervals as possible. However, based on current guidance, second doses of both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines can be administered up to six weeks after the first dose. The vaccines are not interchangeable.
People with questions or who need assistance making appointments, can call the COVID-19 helpline at (1-800) 401-0946. The line is staffed seven days per week from 8 a.m. – 8 p.m.
In addition, vaccine is currently available for people age 70 and over, those in the health care workforce, public safety and security, and frontline community support groups.
