COVID-19 VACCINE INFORMATION FOR QUAD-COUNTY  

Starting April 5, 2021 all Nevadans ages 16 and older are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine at a CCHHS vaccination event and from community partners such as pharmacies and providers in the Region. The vaccine is safe, effective, and available free of charge!

For those ages 16 and 17, the only COVID-19 vaccine currently authorized for use in this age group is the Pfizer vaccine. When scheduling an appointment, look for an event that says “Pfizer”.

CCHHS and other vaccine providers receive limited doses of COVID-19 vaccine each week. If an appointment is not available, please continue to check the scheduling system: https://gethealthycarsoncity.org/novel-coronavirus-2019/covid-19-vaccine/ to schedule an appointment. 

For COVID-19 questions, vaccine appointment confirmations, or to arrange for testing, call the Quad-County COVID-19 Hotline Monday through Friday, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. Spanish speakers are available. The phone number is (775) 434-1988.

Pharmacy Vaccination Appointments:

Carson Tahoe Medical Group is offering the vaccine (while supplies last) to anyone 18+. Vaccination appointments will be offered each Friday at Eagle Medical Center in North Carson City. Click the link to sign up!

Mobile Vaccination Unit

The Mobile Vaccination Units (MVU) were launched by the State of Nevada, FEMA, and local partners to bring COVID-19 vaccines to rural areas.  Mobile Vaccination Units (MVU) in Nevada will switch vaccinations to the two-dose Pfizer vaccine for future planned clinics. The change is due to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Federal Drug Administration (FDA) recommendation that the United States pause using the Janssen vaccine (also referred to as the Johnson & Johnson - COVID-19 vaccine). The mobile units will continue to provide vaccines via walk-up registration and the Pfizer vaccine is available to all Nevadans 16 and older on a first-come, first-served basis. The MVUs will be returning to each community 21 days following their first visit to provide the second dose. More information and a complete schedule can be found at [url=http://www.NVCOVIDFighter.org]http://www.NVCOVIDFighter.org[/url] on the county page, under Mobile Vaccination Unit. Note that the schedule is subject to change. FEMA sent two MVUs to the state on April 5, to support equitable distribution of COVID-19 vaccine to vulnerable populations in rural and tribal areas where limited medical infrastructure exists. They are staffed by registered nurses, vaccinators and vaccination preparers, pharmacy technicians, as well as registration, screening personnel and security from local communities. Emergency medical services are on-scene daily at each location and near the observation tent in case of any adverse reactions to the vaccine, which have been rare.

More information and a complete schedule can be found at www.NVCOVIDFighter.org on the county page, under Mobile Vaccination Unit. Note that the schedule is subject to change.

CCHHS Pauses Janssen COVID-19 Vaccinations

(Carson City, Nevada)- On April 13, 2021 the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommended a pause in the use of the single-dose Janssen (Johnson and Johnson) vaccine. In light of the recommendation from the CDC, the FDA, and The State of Nevada, Carson City Health and Human Services will pause the use of the Janssen vaccine until the review is complete.

To prevent the disruption in vaccination events, CCHHS will be contacting those who have an appointment at a CCHHS Janssen event and offering them the Moderna vaccine instead. If an individual does not wish to receive the Moderna vaccine, they will need to schedule another appointment; CCHHS will not be rescheduling appointments. To cancel appointments or to reschedule, log into your appointment account at https://booking.appointy.com/en-US/quadcovidvaccine/bookings/service.

CCHHS is urging the community to trust the safety and effectiveness of the authorized vaccines. The CDC and the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices are meeting to review the Janssen vaccine reactions and will provide information once it is available. CCHHS will continue to work with the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services and the Nevada State Immunization Program throughout the pause and will provide additional information as it becomes available.

People who have received the Janssen vaccine who develop severe headache, abdominal pain, leg pain, or shortness of breath within three weeks after vaccination should contact their health care provider. Health care providers are asked to report adverse events to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System at https://vaers.hhs.gov/reportevent.html.

For questions, contact the Quad-County COVID-19 Hotline at 775-434-1988. More information on the pause of the Janssen vaccine can be found at https://www.cdc.gov/media/releases/2021/s0413-JJ-vaccine.html.

Carson City Business Supply Assistance 

The State of Nevada allocated $10.2 Million to Carson City from the Coronavirus Relief Fund through the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. Funding from the Coronavirus Relief Fund will help Carson City cover the immediate impacts of the COVID-19 emergency and its continued response and recovery efforts. Economic effects have been significant, and city schools, hospitals, long-term care facilities, non-profits and businesses need funding assistance to facilitate compliance with public health measures. As a result, on August 5, 2020, the Carson City Board of Supervisors approved the City’s Plan of Expenditure which included $1 million dollars to be used to purchase personal protective equipment and sanitation supplies for citywide distribution to ensure the safety of public employees, hospital employees, businesses, patrons, adults, and children. For more information and to fill your request go to: https://carson.org/ppe
