Time to start to think about back to school and for many families this means shots!
Beginning Wednesday, August 1, the Southern Nevada Health District will offer its first services at its future home, 330 S. Valley View Blvd at Meadows Lane when it begins its annual back-to-school immunization clinics.
The health district’s new, main public health center will be open for back to school shots Monday – Friday, 8 a.m.– 4:30 p.m. No other health district services will be available at this time.
Currently, school shots will be the only services offered throughout August at the new location. Back-to-school immunizations will be available from 8 a.m. – 6 p.m. Mon., Aug. 13-Fri., Aug. 17 and Mon., Aug. 20-Fri., Aug. 24.
Special back-to-school immunization clinics will be available 8 a.m.– 3:30 p.m., Friday, Aug. 24 at the East Las Vegas and Henderson public health centers. Additional health district services will be offered at the new public health center in the coming months.
To obtain an immunization exemption, you must attend a vaccine education class. Call (702) 759-0898 and leave your name and number to schedule the class. You will be notified of the class date and time.
Vaccine costs vary based on the type of immunization required. In addition to the vaccine costs, the health district charges an administrative fee of $16 per person for one vaccine and $25 per person for two or more vaccines.
Payment by Visa, MasterCard, cash, Culinary Insurance*, Nevada Check-up, Medicaid, and Medicare Part B & D, and Medicare Railroad is accepted. Not all vaccines are covered by insurance.
