Posted at 2:31 PM, Aug 14, 2020

The Health District, Immunize Nevada and community partners are holding a Back-to-School Shot Clinic on Aug. 22, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the agency’s main location at 280 S. Decatur Blvd.

Immunizations are available by appointment only to ensure safe social distancing. Appointments can be booked here. All appointments must be made at least 24 hours in advance of the clinic date.

Attendees who have health insurance, including Nevada Checkup and Medicaid, should bring their insurance card, and parents should bring their children’s immunizations records if available.

The Health District also provides back-to-school immunizations at its clinic locations during normal business hours. Due to the COVID-19 response, the Health District is limiting the number of patients allowed in its clinics and immunization services are available by appointment only. Only one parent or guardian is allowed in the clinic with the child for services.

Call (702) 759-0850 to schedule an appointment or visit their website.

The Clark County School District requires the following vaccinations for students enrolling in school: chickenpox (varicella), hepatitis A, hepatitis B, polio, tetanus-diphtheria-pertussis (DTaP and Tdap), quadrivalent meningitis, and measles-mumps-rubella (MMR).

Parents who recently moved to Nevada should note hepatitis A vaccination is required in the state. Immunizations that were up to date in other states that do not require hepatitis A vaccination might not be current in Nevada.
