Immunize Nevada’s Coronavirus (COVID-19) Brief

We introduce our Coronavirus (COVID-19) Brief. This blog will be updated regularly with local and statewide information about the virus, health resources, and additional information that will best inform Nevadans on how to ensure their health. 

Can I Get Help Paying for Shots?

Vaccines keep us healthy and protect us from catching devastating diseases. But what about the children who have parents who can’t afford vaccines?

You may be wondering if you should still visit the doctor’s office or clinic for your child’s shots.

Nevada has recently been placed within the categories of high and moderate on the CDC’s Influenza Like Illness map which compares flu-like activity of all 50 states.
