THURSDAY AT 4:30 P.M.: Governor Sisolak, Immunize Nevada to announce sixth round of Vax Nevada Days winners at Touro University in Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS - August 11, 2021

Governor Sisolak and Immunize Nevada will announce the sixth Vax Nevada Days winners Thursday at 4:30 p.m. at Touro University.

Vax Nevada Days, a public health initiative launched in June 2021, will dole out $5 million in cash and prizes to nearly 2,000 Nevada residents who have initiated the COVID-19 vaccine process. Announcements will be made every Thursday from July 8 through August 26, when the grand prize winner of $1 million will be announced.

The Governor will be joined by Immunize Nevada and prize winners*. The event will be streamed on the Nevada Health Response YouTube Channel.

Media are asked to RSVP to press@gov.nv.gov no later than noon on Thursday and to be on-site no later than 4:15 p.m. on Thursday. Interview opportunities will be available after the event concludes. Those in attendance must wear a mask.

Touro University’s policy is to only allow fully vaccinated individuals or those who test negative for COVID-19 allowed in their building, as it is an active medical facility. Anyone who is not vaccinated or doesn’t have proof will have to take a rapid test and stay in their vehicle until cleared to enter. Touro University will provide rapid tests for attendees who may need them. Media is asked to plan for this when making arrangements to attend.
