(Carson City, NV)- Carson City Health and Human Services (CCHHS) is continuing to move forward with COVID-19 vaccinations in the Quad-County Region based on the current federally approved COVID-19 Vaccine Guidance set by the State of Nevada. CCHHS is now offering COVID-19 vaccines to Quad-County residents age 70 years and older.
Starting January 13, 2021 Quad-County seniors aged 70 and older are now eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Appointments are required and seniors can register for an appointment at https://bit.ly/2XF64Cp. All Quad-County COVID-19 vaccination events are open to seniors 70 and older. CCHHS will be offering two events for seniors 70 and older next week. Proof of residency and age will be required at time of vaccination.

CCHHS continues to work with the State to identify different outlets for COVID-19 vaccination in our communities. There is no estimated time for when groups will be eligible for the vaccine. More information on how to get vaccinated will become available as the COVID-19 vaccine roll out progress continues. Groups will be notified when they are eligible for the vaccine through a variety of ways including community and senior centers, local media, social media, county communications, primary care providers, pharmacies, medical groups, and gethealthycarsoncity.org.
