The site, located in Exhibit Hall B of Cashman Center, 850 N. Las Vegas Blvd, offers appointment-only, first-dose COVID-19 vaccinations to people age 70 and older, and other individuals currently eligible to receive the vaccine in the health care workforce, public safety and security, and frontline community support groups.

Appointments can be booked online via the vaccine distribution page of the Health District’s website at www.SNHD.info/covid.

Due to limited supplies of COVID-19 vaccine, first-dose clinics operated by Clark County and the Health District offer the vaccine on an appointment-only basis to ensure everyone who arrives at the clinic and is currently eligible to receive the vaccine will get it.

Those who receive first-doses of vaccine at Cashman Center and other Health District partner clinics, will go to the second-dose clinic set up at a the Las Vegas Convention Center, C-1 area of the facility’s Central Hall at 3150 Paradise Road, to receive their second dose.

The Convention Center second-dose clinic operates Tuesday through Saturday and is only open to people who have received their first dose and have met the due dates for their second dose – no sooner than 21 days for the Pfizer vaccine and 28 days for Moderna.

Appointments for second doses can be scheduled online through the Health District’s website. Walk-in appointments also are available for second doses only at the Convention Center, 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. based on clinic capacity on the day people visit.

Whether scheduling appointments for first or second doses, people are asked not to double book appointments to help reduce no-show rates at clinics and to ensure appointments are available to those who need them. People who need assistance to schedule or cancel appointments may call the Health District’s vaccination line at (702) 759-1900, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
