Follow the signage and enter the fairgrounds via Miner’s Road off U.S. Highway 95 South.

Vaccines are available on a first-come, first-served basis for as long as supplies last. No appointment needed. The county is only offering the Moderna vaccine at this time.

Now serving:
  • Ages 18 and older; bring a photo ID; for those ages 16-17, please reach out to providers that have Pfizer (Moderna and Janssen have not been approved for use with this age group) including Walgreens, Safeway, CVS or Walmart.
 
Forms
