Nevada Expects To Start Vaccinating People 75 And Older Soon

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Health officials say coronavirus vaccinations for people age 75 and older in Clark County, which includes Las Vegas, could begin at pharmacies as soon as next week.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported Monday that a Southern Nevada Health District spokeswoman says those vaccinations could begin as soon as Jan. 11.

Vaccination efforts in Nevada so far have focused on front-line health care workers and staff and residents in long-term care facilities. A Nevada Health and Human Services spokeswoman says multiple counties could "soon" begin vaccinating people in the state's second-tier priority group, which includes older people.
