ELKO COUNTY COVID-19 VACCINE ADMINISTRATION UPDATE – 2/11/2021
Elko County continues to administer the COVID-19 vaccine in coordination with the Nevada State Immunization Program (NSIP) and local health partners, including Northeastern Nevada Regional Hospital and Nevada Health Centers. Since the start of the vaccine rollout in late December through February 2, 2021, Elko County has received an allocation of 5,145 first doses, including vaccine directly allocated to Smith’s pharmacy. As of February 10, 2021, 5,015 first doses and 851 second doses have been administered for a total of 5,866 doses administered.
While the vaccine eligibility criteria will remain the same for the next few weeks, we are working closely with the State Immunization Program to onboard additional vaccine providers to allow for more access within our communities. Our ability to move into the next prioritization will largely depend on vaccine allocation over the next few weeks.
Effective February 12, 2021, Walmart pharmacy will begin administering COVID-19 vaccine through the U.S. Federal Retail Pharmacy Program. Eligible individuals can schedule an appointment directly via the Walmart website once appointments are available. Visit the Elko County website at https://www.elkocountynv.net/newsdetail_T4_R342.php to review the eligibility criteria.
Individuals may be required to provide the following documentation:
- Proof of employment (to verify prioritization in one of the essential work force categories)
- Health insurance information, if insured
If you meet the eligibility criteria, you may register for a COVID-19 vaccination at one of the locations below:
