COVID-19 Vaccines

Here's what you need to know: 

The COVID-19 pandemic has been a long and difficult road, and there have been times when public health guidance has been confusing or contradictory. But vaccines have been an important tool for preventing serious, deadly diseases, and the COVID-19 vaccines are no different. 

All of the FDA-authorized options will reduce the severity of the symptoms should you contract COVID-19 as well as help prevent the spread of the virus that has resulted in unprecedented loss of life. The COVID-19 vaccines are a safe, effective way to protect you, your family, and your community.


Who Is Eligible for the Vaccine?

All Nevadans 12 and older are now eligible to make vaccine appointments!

Where and how to make an appointment:

Where to get vaccinated varies by county. To book your appointments visit the state scheduler website.

You can also find the most up-to-date information regarding COVID-19 mitigation measures from Nevada Health Response and learn more about county-specific vaccination efforts from Immunize NV.

Are you in Las Vegas and need a vaccine? You can now book drive-through vaccination appointments at the Las Vegas Convention Center, and select locations are taking walk-ins.

To see the full list of walk-in locations (including Cashman Center and the Las Vegas Convention Center) or to book a drive-through appointment, visit the Southern Nevada Health District’s website.

Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains is participating in monthly community fairs where you can receive the COVID-19 vaccine, as well as learn more about STI-testing and treatment, and check out other community health resources in Spanish. To learn more about those events contact Karla Ramirez at [email protected]

For Washoe County residents, there are several options for vaccination appointments.

There’s a website dedicated to making access to COVID-19 vaccines easy for everyone, including people who aren’t able to leave their homes for the vaccine. There are even free rides available for people who need transportation to vaccination sites. Please visit this site for more information.


Why Does Planned Parenthood Support the Vaccine?

The COVID-19 pandemic laid bare the vast racial health disparities in so many parts of the country. Barriers to health care access from centuries of systemic racism have meant that people and families from Black, Latinx, Indigenous, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander communities are more likely to be infected with and die from the virus.

We know that getting the vaccine is an important step toward saving lives and rebuilding communities that have been devastated by this health crisis. We also understand that racism and the medical establishment’s pattern of discrimination and abuse have led to deep mistrust among Black, Indigenous, Latinx, and other people of color.

PPVNV is committed to working in partnership with the communities we serve to provide information and resources to Planned Parenthood patients so they can make informed decisions about their bodies and their futures.
