Churchill County’s next date for eligible groups to receive the free COVID vaccine will be Thursday, Feb. 18 at the county fairgrounds, 325 Sheckler Road in Fallon.

First Doses

Feb. 18 at 2 p.m. Drive-in, no appointment needed:

Continuing to serve:

  • Ages 70+
  • Ages 65+ 
  • Department of Corrections employees, law enforcement/public safety employees, local emergency operators, education and childcare employees and Nevada System of Higher Education frontline educators, staff and students 
  • Community support frontline staff including those working to serve vulnerable populations with food service, shelter services, court/legal and social services; essential public transportation workers, state and local government officials and staff limited to 1.2 of the State plan, essential public health workforce and mortuary services

Employees of any of the groups listed must be employed in Churchill County and bring proof of employment such as a recent paystub or employer-issued identification to receive the vaccine. Residents should bring proof of age (like a current driver’s license).

To expedite your vaccination process, please print and fill out the “COVID-19 Questionnaire” and “Pre-Vaccination Checklist” forms on the county’s website and bring them with you to the fairgrounds.

Second Doses ONLY

Feb. 18 from 1-2 p.m. at the fairgrounds. Churchill County will always maintain the supply to ensure everyone will receive their 2nd dose when it is due.

Please refer to your vaccination card to see when you are eligible for your second vaccine dose.

Getting to the Churchill County Fairgrounds

All persons using the fairgrounds for their vaccine should arrive via Miners Road from Highway 95 south. Sheckler entrances to the fairgrounds will be closed and anyone blocking state highways (including Sheckler) will be cited by law enforcement.

CART, is available to take eligible vaccine populations who don’t have a ride to the fairgrounds to receive their COVID vaccine. Masks are required when riding the CART bus. CART can provide free rides for up to 12 people each vaccination date. To arrange for a ride to the fairgrounds, call CART at (775)428-2988 weekdays between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. This service will continue each week during vaccination dates at the fairgrounds until further notice.

Medicaid recipients needing a ride to the fairgrounds for the vaccine should contact Medicaid for an expedited request. Medicaid is waiving the five-day ride request requirement for those seeking the vaccine.

Banner is only offering 2nd dose vaccines to those 70 and older who have already received the first vaccine at Banner. Call (775)867-7740 to make a 2nd dose vaccine appointment at the hospital. Banner is no longer offering first dose vaccinations.

Walmart

Walmart in Fallon now offers the vaccine to those 70+ via appointment through their online portal: https://www.walmart.com. You will need an email and to create an account to schedule your vaccine at Walmart.

Walgreens
