Free COVID-19 vaccinations for people 70 and older are available Feb. 3-5 at the Doolittle Senior Center in Las Vegas.

Advance online registration and an appointment is required. The clinic will have a limit of 300 doses a day. This clinic will distribute first doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.

After the appointments filled up in a matter of hours on Friday, the city of Las Vegas announced Monday that they’d be adding more.

Please follow these steps to make an appointment:

  1. If you are 70+ and would like a vaccine, register online at https://clvdoolittlevaccinesite.youcanbook.me/
  2. Print a consent form to bring to their appointment

Advance registration is required for appointments starting at 8 a.m. and ending at 3 p.m. each day, according to a City of Las Vegas news release. Staff requests that people not arrive more than five minutes before their appointment, but also be sure to be on time.

The Doolittle Senior Center is at 1930 N. J St. at the corner of J Street and Lake Mead Boulevard, just east of Martin L. King Boulevard.

This clinic is a partnership with Roseman University, Touro University and Nevada State College. Medical students will assist with the clinic and vaccine dosages are provided by the Southern Nevada Health District.

“Clark County is proud to partner with the city of Las Vegas in expanding the number of vaccinations that can take place at the Doolittle Senior Center during this week’s vaccination clinic,” said Clark County Commissioner William McCurdy II, whose Commission District D includes the senior center. “This allows us to share resources and deliver COVID-19 vaccines directly to senior citizens living in some of the hardest-hit neighborhoods in our community.”

COVID-19 vaccination is not recommended for the following individuals, unless you consult with your primary physician:

  • You have known allergies to the ingredients in the Moderna or Pfizer brand of vaccine or if you have any other allergies for which you are prescribed Epinephrine.
  • Are an immune-compromised individual.
  • Have lupus.
  • Have cancer.
  • Received any vaccination within 14 days of seeking the COVID-19 vaccination.
  • Tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 90 days unless you have cleared the quarantine period AND are symptom free with negative test results.
  • If you have been treated with antibodies or plasma for COVID-19, you must wait 90 days from last treatment to get the vaccine.

The health district asks that patients wear clothing that allows easy access to the upper arm. Please wear a face covering over the nose and mouth.

Along with the Doolittle site, the Health District also is providing several other vaccination sites throughout the city and additional information can be found by clicking HERE. Many of those locations, such as one scheduled in Summerlin next week, have had all appointments filled, but the Health District will continue to update on new availability.
