Churchill County Moves Ahead With Tier 2 Vaccinations

Person Holding A Vaccine

In accordance with the State of Nevada’s vaccination playbook, Churchill County will begin administering its first Tier 2 COVID vaccines to educators in the county on Jan. 14. This process will be by “appointment only” and scheduled through education employers. Vaccinations will be conducted at the fairgrounds. 

By advancing to Tier 2 and providing vaccinations to Churchill County educators, the county will next move forward with vaccinations for the 70+ age group. Vaccines will be administered to the first 400 county residents aged 70+, on a “first-come, first-served” basis on Thursday, Jan. 21 beginning at 4 p.m. via drive-thru at the County Fairgrounds located on Sheckler Road. Photo identification for age and Churchill County residency verification will be required. This date and time is reserved specifically for those 70 and older only. Please do not show up expecting to receive a vaccine unless you meet the age criteria.  

Churchill County is also partnering with Banner Churchill to administer vaccines to those 70 and up. If you prefer scheduling an appointment or can’t make the Jan. 21 date at the fairgrounds, please contact Banner Churchill Community Hospital Clinic weekdays from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. by calling (775)867-7740. 

The 70+ population represents more than 1,500 people in the community, and we will work as efficiently as possible to administer these vaccines over the next few weeks. It is our hope that local pharmacies will be able to assist in the administration of the vaccine in the near future.

We ask the public to avoid using the section of Sheckler Road in front of the fairgrounds, on Jan 14 and 21, and all vaccine dates as released, to limit traffic difficulties.

Additional vaccine dates and information on Tiers will be provided when available.
