All nine of Clark County’s COVID-19 vaccine providers will schedule appointments for next week.

Individuals who are 65 and older or individuals with a qualifying health condition can schedule an appointment, according to a statement from the Clark County Combined Health District.

Registrations with the county health district will begin at 8:30 a.m. Thursday.

Qualifying health conditions include: cerebral palsy, spina bifida, inherited metabolic disorder including phenylketonuria, severe neurological disorders including epilepsy, hydrocephaly and microcephaly, severe genetic disorders including Down Syndrome, fragile X syndrome, Prader-Willi syndrome, Turner syndrome and muscular dystrophy, cystic fibrosis, sickle cell anemia, alpha and beta thalassemia, solid organ transplants, severe congenital heart disease requiring hospitalizations within the past year, severe type 1 diabetes requiring hospitalizations within the past year, severe lung disease including asthma requiring hospitalizations within the past year.

Those who were eligible for vaccination in phase 1a, including non-hospital affiliated healthcare workers and congregate care residents and staff, nursing home or assisted living facilities not enrolled in the federal long-term care pharmacy program are also able to schedule appointments.

“It is unknown how long vaccine eligibility will be held at 65 and when the eligibility restrictions are loosened, the ability to procure an appointment will drastically decrease,” the statement said.
