Fire Station 38 to Host  #GetVaxxedNV Drive-Thru Clinic on June 12

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, June 12, 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. The Pfizer vaccine is available in addition to Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen one-shot vaccine.

Anyone who received a first-dose of the Pfizer vaccine at Fire Station 38’s drive-thru clinic on May 22 can receive their second doses on Saturday.
Those who receive a first dose of the Pfizer vaccine on June 12 will be referred to other local clinics to schedule their second dose appointments in three weeks. The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines require two doses for maximum protection from coronavirus. Appointments for COVID-19 vaccinations can be booked online through the Southern Nevada Health District’s website at www.snhd.info/covid-vaccine. Many local pharmacies offer COVID-19 shots. People also can call the state’s vaccine hotline at 1-800-401-0946, 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily, for appointment information.

“Our personnel at Fire Station 38 do a great job making this drive-thru clinic easy and convenient for our residents,” said Clark County Commissioner Michael Naft, whose commission district includes the station. “People can drive right into the fire station bay to get their shots. It’s a very unique operation for families with kids or anyone who wants to get vaccinated.”

The clinic is being supported by Station 38 firefighters and paramedics, the Health District as well as Nevada National Guard personnel. Upon arrival, motorists 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. They then park in a nearby parking lot to wait out their 15-minute observation time.

COVID-19 vaccination services also are available to anyone in our community who is homebound. For information call (702) 455-0696 or email HomeboundVaccine@ClarkCountyNV.gov.
