LAS VEGAS – March 15, 2021
Today, Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak met with United States Vice President Kamala Harris to tour the immunization clinic at UNLV's Student Union Building and discuss how the American Rescue Plan will help Nevada crush the pandemic and continue economic recovery efforts. The Governor issued the following statement after the visit:
"I want to thank Vice President Kamala Harris and Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff for coming to Nevada today to see the incredible work the State is doing – in partnership with leaders, volunteers and organizers at the local level – to administer the COVID-19 vaccines as fast as our federal allocation allows and ensure that all Nevadans who want access to the life-saving vaccines have access as soon as possible.
With the recent passage of the American Rescue Plan, we know that even more help is on the way for Nevadans – including increased funding to help us put shots into arms even faster and more efficiently, all while ensuring that we are keeping access and equity at the forefront. Together, we will continue to work with our federal and local partners to slow the spread of COVID-19 and help get our economy back on track.”
