Churchill County now offers a third dose of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines to those who self-report as being immunocompromised at any of its regularly-scheduled vaccine events (see September schedule above).
Those who want the third dose should match the dose type used with their primary vaccine series (if you got Pfizer earlier in the year, ask for Pfizer for the third dose) and wait 28 days after their second dose to be eligible for their third vaccine.
The third dose is only available for those who received the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines at this time. Please bring your vaccination card with you if wanting a third dose. If you can’t find your card, you may download it from WebIZ.
Please print and fill out the “COVID-19 Questionnaire” and “Pre-Vaccination Checklist” forms and bring them with you to the vaccine site. The forms will also be available at the vaccine site.
If you or someone you know is homebound, or cannot access the vaccine site for whatever reason, please call (775)423-6695, option 2 to discuss alternative options.
