COVID-19 vaccine booster doses are now available to Nevada residents 18 and over.
Previously, booster vaccinations were only approved and recommended in Nevada for people who were at an increased risk of contracting the coronavirus due to their age, health status, occupation, or frequent contact with people.
Booster vaccination is recommended and will be available at least six months after receiving the second dose of vaccine Pfizer o Modern and at least two months after receiving a vaccine Janssen.
People can choose which vaccine they want to receive as a booster dose; which does not have to be the same as the original COVID-19 vaccine, as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) allows “Mix and Match”.
Some providers may not have all of the COVID-19 vaccine options, the Nevada DHHS warned in a statement. Health authorities encourage people who want a booster vaccination to ask about available vaccine options when making an appointment.

The CDC recommends people with immune disorders speak to a doctor to see if a third dose is recommended for them.
The federal government distributes COVID-19 vaccines free of charge and regardless of immigration status. While people don’t need ID or health insurance, the CDC recommends showing vaccination cards.
