Join us for Breakfast!

Good morning Nevada! Welcome to our Virtual Big Shots Breakfast. We are excited to celebrate with you online – from wherever you are! You might still be wearing your slippers or PJs, and that’s fabulous. Some of us are wearing Big Socks for Big Shots, so be on the lookout for these snazzy socks as we literally – stand for science.


Whether it’s work, home – or another state – you can tune in and follow along for the next hour on our social media accounts, or right here on this page. You can show your support by commenting in the box below!

The Big Shots Breakfast is an opportunity for us to recognize immunization and health champions across Nevada, share pro-science and pro-vaccine messages, and celebrate those whose generosity make our programs possible – our sponsors and donors - like you!

We have an outstanding group of individual and organization Big Shots nominees, and yesterday we shared tidbits about them on social media – but you can read about them on our blog too. If you know one or more of them, leave a positive reply to show your appreciation for the work they are doing.

Over the next hour, we’ll be announcing the winners for Outstanding Clinician, Community Partner, and Champion in both northern and southern Nevada.  You can follow along with all the Big Shots posts with the #ivax2protect  #injectcommonsense and #bigshots hashtags on LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

I am 2000 miles away but am grateful to all of you for your important work that benefits every single one of us. My fully vaccinated family will travel to Nevada this year  and feel safer because of folks like you.
