Following the Nevada COVID-19 Vaccination Playbook, Boulder City Fire Department and Boulder City Hospital are preparing to open lane two: vaccinating Boulder City residents ages 65-69.

Week one of the COVID-19 vaccination clinics (Jan. 25-28) went smoothly, with nearly 700 people receiving their first dose of the Moderna vaccine.

Those without an appointment will be refused.

Clinics are held at the Elaine K. Smith Building, 700 Wyoming St, and the Boulder City Hospital, 901 Adams Blvd, both in Boulder City. There is no charge for vaccinations. The Smith Building clinics will run Monday through Thursday, from 8 a.m.-noon and 1 p.m.- 3 p.m. for people 65-69 years of age and older (must show ID). We will continue to vaccinate ages 70+ and educators that live or work in Boulder City (required to show a valid school system ID) by appointment as well. BC Hospital hours are 8 a.m.-5 p.m.

The next priority group – Boulder City residents ages 16-64 with underlying medical conditions, individuals with disabilities, and individuals experiencing homelessness - are in lane three. Healthy adults 16-64 will be the last group to receive the vaccine.

The City also provides free testing at the Fire Department – no appointment necessary – Monday and Tuesday for anyone, Wednesday and Thursday for Boulder City residents and people who work in Boulder City only. Hours are 8 a.m.-noon.
