CARSON CITY – March 18, 2021
Today, Governor Steve Sisolak announced that more than 1 million COVID-19 vaccines have been administered in the State of Nevada through the State and pharmacy allocations that have been reported to Nevada WebIZ.
“This milestone marks a significant moment as Nevadans fight to end the pandemic, but this milestone doesn’t happen without the individual contributions of so many,” said Governor Sisolak. “Thank you to our state and local emergency managers, the Nevada National Guard, FEMA staff on the ground in Nevada, our public health officials, and all of the health care workers vaccinating Nevadans. And thank you to all those who have chosen to be vaccinated and to all who are patiently waiting your turn and continuing the mitigation measure we know work.”
Pfizer and Moderna vaccines both require two doses, 21 and 28 days apart, respectively, and 367,732 Nevadans are fully vaccinated either with the two required shots or through the one-dose Janssen vaccine.
