Commissioner Naft, Fire Station 38 Hosting #GetVaxxedNV Drive-Through  Clinic on May 22

Clark County Commissioner Michael Naft and the Clark County Fire Department are hosting a drive-through #GetVaxxedNV vaccination clinic from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, May 22, at Fire Station 38, 1755 Silver Hawk Avenue, off Spencer Street and Serene Avenue.

The clinic will offer free COVID-19 shots while supplies last. No appointments are necessary. Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen one-shot vaccine will be available in addition to first doses of the Pfizer vaccine. A second clinic will be held at Fire Station 38 on Saturday, June 12, 10 a.m. to noon, for people to return for their second dose Pfizer vaccine shots. Both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines require two doses for maximum protection from coronavirus.

“We want to make it easy and convenient for residents to get their COVID-19 vaccinations, and drive through operations are a great way to do that,” said Clark County Commissioner Michael Naft, whose commission district includes Fire Station 38. “This site will be unique because residents will be driving into the bay at the fire station to receive their shots, and then they’ll park in a nearby parking lot to wait out their 15-minute observation time.”

The clinic is being supported by Station 38 firefighters and paramedics, the Health District as well as Nevada National Guard personnel. Upon arrival, motorists will park in the parking lot of Silverado High School located north of the fire station to be checked in before driving into the fire station’s bay for their shots.
