Vaccine Call Center

Nevada has set up a call center to help those with questions about the vaccine and vaccination process. The number is: 1-800-401-0946. It is open seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

The SNHD’s Moderna vaccines were first administered the week of Jan. 4 and Pfizer’s the week of Jan. 18. The second dose may be administered after 28 days for Moderna, and 21 days for Pfizer. The health district recommends getting the second dose as close to the above intervals as possible, but you can receive it up until six weeks after.

What to bring to your vaccine appointment

Every individual eligible to receive the vaccine must make an appointment. Appointments may be limited. More dates and times are being added, and everyone who wants the vaccine will be able to get it, the health district notes on its website.

Proof of employment as well as a photo ID and proof of residency should be brought to your appointment, SNHD states on its website.

RTC routes to vaccination sites

Seniors who might need a vaccine but don’t have transportation can use the the RTC bus system, or if they need special assistance, the RTC’s paratransit system.

Nevadans 16 years and older can schedule a vaccine starting April 5

President Joe Biden has directed all states, territories and tribes to make all American adults eligible for the vaccines by at least May 1.

Nevada will be beating the deadline with a few weeks to spare.

Governor Steve Sisolak announced March 17, 2021, a year after the state closed nonessential businesses to slow the spread of the virus, that all Nevadans 16 and older will be eligible for the vaccine starting April 5.
