Latest COVID-19 vaccines available at Health District clinics

Updated September 25, 2023 - 8:45 am

The Southern Nevada Health District is now offering the updated COVID-19 vaccine at its clinics, the agency reported Monday.

The rollout follows recommendations by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, amid an increase in COVID-19 hospitalizations and concerns about the spread of new variants.

Everyone 6 months of age and older should get at least one dose of an updated COVID-19 vaccine. The updated vaccines are expected to work well against currently circulating variants of COVID-19.

People can receive a flu vaccination at the same time as the COVID-19 vaccine. Both are available at SNHD clinics as well as pharmacies and health care provider offices throughout Southern Nevada. To locate a COVID-19 vaccine clinic, visit www.SNHD.info/covid-vaccine. For information about flu vaccine clinics, visit www.snhd.info/flu.

The vaccines are covered by most health plans, including private insurance, Medicare plans and Medicaid plans. Uninsured children and uninsured adults also have access through the Vaccines for Children Program and Bridge Access Program, respectively.
