LAS VEGAS (KTNV)  — The Southern Nevada Health District says it has notified people who made their first dose appointments at the Las Vegas Convention Center second dose clinic that their appointments have been canceled as of Thursday.

As a result, the SNHD will be able to provide a vaccine to second dose walk-in patients for the next four weeks.

Walk-in patients who are eligible this week received their first dose of the Moderna vaccine between Jan. 4-9, 2021, according to the SNHD, and patients will be served based on vaccine availability.

Each week’s walk-in eligibility will be reserved for patients who received the Moderna vaccine at a health district or partner clinic no sooner than 28 days prior.

People who received their vaccine from another provider or who received the Pfizer vaccine are not eligible to receive the vaccine on a walk-in basis.

The health district says it is currently notifying people who registered and received the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine with its original registration system that they are eligible to receive the vaccine and based on the recommended intervals for getting the second dose.

The Convention Center clinic site is located in the C-1 area of the facility’s Central Hall and open Tuesday through Saturday. Walk-ins will be served from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. or based on vaccine availability.
