LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — There’s a new fire station in the Las Vegas valley and it’s celebrating its grand opening by offering COVID-19 vaccines.

The new fire station is located in the 89110 zip code at Charleston and Nellis Boulevards. According to the Southern Nevada Health District, this zip code, has the most cases of COVID-19 in all of Nevada.

For this reason, Fire Station 61, held a pop-up vaccine clinic Monday afternoon and administered the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine to anyone on a first-come, first-serve basis.

The new fire station took less than two years to construct and it houses a fire engine, a paramedic unit, a kitchen, gym, an entertainment room, an outdoor living space and has 12 private sleeping quarters.

This new modern building replaces the old firehouse that was built on the same location in 1979.
