March 22, 2021 Vaccine Update (taken from GetHealthyCarsonCity.org)
At this time, Carson City Health and Human Services recommends that Quad County residents, ages 16-64 years old with underlying conditions get the COVID-19 vaccine at participating pharmacies and private providers. In partnership with the Federal Government Pharmacy Program, pharmacies and providers are able to receive vaccines for the general population. Private medical practices and clinics will now be able to order vaccines for their patients, so we’re asking those with underlying conditions and disabilities to make an appointment with their doctor or routine care provider, or pharmacy to receive their vaccine. Healthcare professionals (doctors and pharmacists) are in the best position to assist people with underlying conditions.
Those who are eligible based on employment do not need to go through their employer however they must work in either Carson City, Douglas, Lyon, or Storey County. Appointments may be limited. Dates, times, and events are added weekly as we receive our vaccine allocation. People who are eligible should bring proof of identity to their appointment. People who are eligible in the Frontline/Essential Workforce lane must also bring proof of employment such as a badge or paystub.
To book an appointment for a vaccine, go to GetHealthyCarsonCity.org
