LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Adults over the age of 50 can now get a second booster dose of COVID-19 vaccine in Southern Nevada.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced the recommendation on Tuesday, adding that the second booster shot is "especially important" for people older than 65 and for people over 50 with underlying medical conditions.
The doses are authorized for the approved mRNA vaccines, Moderna and Pfizer. They are available to people regardless of which vaccines they originally received, officials with the Southern Nevada Health District said.
Moderna boosters have been authorized for people over the age of 18, and Pfizer boosters have been authorized for those older than 12.
The Health District encouraged Clark County residents who haven't completed their vaccination to do so. To date, more than 72% of eligible Clark County residents have gotten at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, and more than 58% have been fully vaccinated.
