North Las Vegas opens COVID vaccine registration for those 65, older

People at least 65 years old can register to get the COVID-19 vaccine in North Las Vegas this week.

The city will have a limited number of first dose appointments available. Eligible residents of the 89030, 89031 and 89032 ZIP codes are encouraged to register, the city said in a statement.

“These ZIP codes consistently have some of the highest COVID-19 case numbers and are also experiencing some of the lowest vaccination rates in Clark County,” the statement said.

Appointments will be available starting Wednesday at Canyon Springs High School, which is located in the 89032 ZIP code. They can be made at vaxnlv.com or 702-342-8417. Appointments for second doses will be scheduled as soon as the first dose is administered.
