NORTH LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The VA of Southern Nevada Healthcare System (VASNHS) began its COVID-19 vaccine distribution for veterans ages 65-and-older on Sunday.
Vaccine distributions started Sunday morning at 7 a.m. and ended around 5:30 p.m. at the North Las Vegas VA Medical Center.
First doses of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine were distributed to the first 1,000 VASNHS-enrolled veterans in the newly-eligible age range.
Other locations like the Cashman Center and Desert Pines High School offered first dose vaccinations this past week to those 65 and older — both providing the walk-in method along with servicing those that made their appointments.
“I’m actually kind of happy, I had an appointment for later and they sent me a message saying their doing walk-ins till 3:30, Ronald Pehr told 8 News Now earlier Sunday afternoon.
If they ran out of doses for Sunday, eligible veterans are able to schedule an appointment for a later date.
