COVID-19 Vaccine



Carson City Health and Human Services (CCHHS) and the Quad-County Public Health Preparedness Program (QCPHP) have been working with state and local partners to plan for the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine. The State of Nevada has created a tiered system for vaccine distribution under the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The tiered process focuses on critical populations, those most at risk, front line workers, and those most likely to be exposed to the virus initially to mitigate the burden of disease to the public. CCHHS is following the tiers set by the State of Nevada. For more information on the COVID-19 vaccine, visit our website https://gethealthycarsoncity.org/novel-coronavirus-2019/covid-19-vaccine/.
