The COVID-19 vaccine is proven to reduce the chances of contracting, or being hospitalized from, contracting the Delta variant. The Delta variant is the most dominant in Washoe County and most people hospitalized with the Delta variant are unvaccinated.

The vaccine is also available at the Reno-Sparks Livestock and Events Center or at local drug stores. Children between the ages of 12-17 must have a parent with them when receiving the vaccine.

The next drawing for Vax Nevada Days is set for July 29. More than $5 million in cash and prizes is being awarded to Nevada residents who receive the COVID-19 vaccine before Aug. 15. For more information regarding rules and prizes please visit www.vaxnevadadays.org.
