Local News

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Monday’s Raiders season opener will be the first home game implementing mandatory vaccines for fans and to make the process run smoothly, this weekend the team held an alternate COVID-19 vaccination screening.

Attendees are required to use the ‘Clear Health Pass’ to upload their vaccination info, but for those who may not be fully vaccinated, from out of the country, a certain age, or for those having issues loading their vaccinations cards to the app, this weekend’s screening was for them.

From 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. onSaturday and Sunday, fans can come to the stadium’s Lot B to ensure access to Monday night’s game against the Baltimore Ravens.

The whole point of these alternate screenings is for fans to avoid long wait times and delays ahead of Monday night’s game.

Bob Shearon from Canada was pleased with how operations went on Saturday.

“We didn’t want to wait in a big line on Monday, so we thought we’d just come out and get it done and just enjoy ourselves on gameday without feeling stressed about the whole thing,” Shearon shared.

Those partially vaccinated will be allowed to access Monday’s game, but they must wear a yellow wristband and a mask while at the game. Those that are fully vaccinated can go mask-free but must wear a green wristband.

“It went fast, and it was very organized,” said Connie Duran. “If you had any questions, they answered everything right then and there so on game day it will make for an easy process.”

Anyone 11 years or younger, can enter the stadium without being vaccinated but will have to wear a mask. Vaccines will be administered on-site at Allegiant Stadium on Monday ahead of the game.

Monday’s game against the Baltimore Ravens kicks off at 5 p.m.
