Drive-Thru COVID-19 Tests & Vaccinations Offered at UNLV Site Sunday-Thursday Night

The drive-thru COVID-19 testing and vaccination site operating in the parking lot of UNLV’s Stan Fulton building operates five nights a week, Sunday through Thursday, from 5:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.

The site has the capacity to offer about 500 tests and 300 vaccinations each night of operation on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last. The tests and vaccinations are free. The site’s address is 801 E. Flamingo Road off Paradise Road.

The site has administered about 13,000 tests and more than 1,200 vaccinations since operations began the first week of August. While no appointments are necessary for tests or vaccinations, members of the public seeking COVID-19 tests at the site are encouraged to set up an account online with Color, the lab providing contracted lab testing services. The account registration process enables clients to receive their test results through the phone number or email address they provide. Pre-registration is not an appointment, but advanced registration helps the drive-thru site operate more efficiently. A Color registration link for the Stan Fulton site is posted on the testing site calendar of the Southern Nevada Health District’s website at www.snhd.info/covid-testing or by going directly to the registration link at https://tinyurl.com/yhvadbjv.  Tests are self-swab PCR tests. Results take about 72 hours to process. For test result inquiries, contact Color at (844) 531-0545 or by email at mycovidtest@color.com.

Clark County, the Southern Nevada Health District, Nevada National Guard and Community Ambulance and other partners are operating the site.  The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, requiring an initial two doses, and Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen one-shot vaccine are available at the UNLV location. COVID-19 vaccines are safe, free and highly effective at preventing serious illness. A list of pharmacies and other sites offering vaccinations can be found on the Health District’s website at www.snhd.info/covid-vaccine or by calling the state’s vaccine hotline at 1-800-401-0946.

COVID-19 testing also remains an important part of the community’s efforts to limit the spread of the virus. Additional COVID-19 testing information is available at www.snhd.info/covid-testing and on the Nevada Health Response website at https://nvhealthresponse.nv.gov/find-covid-19-testing-in-nevada/.People who have symptoms of COVID-19 including fever, cough, or shortness of breath, are encouraged to get tested and to stay home if they are sick.
