LAS VEGAS, NEVADA - JANUARY 14: Members of the Nevada National Guard get a check-in table ready on the first day of Clark County's pilot COVID-19 vaccination program at Cashman Center on January 14, 2021 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The county hopes to start by giving about 1,000 doses of the vaccine a day to public safety and critical infrastructure workers during the trial run and eventually open it up to the public, providing 2,000-2,5000 vaccinations daily.

The head of Nevada’s coronavirus response effort acknowledges that almost 58,000 people who received coronavirus vaccine shots in the state didn’t provide in-state addresses. But COVID-19 Task Force chief Caleb Cage said that’s a small number compared with the nearly 1.7 million doses of vaccine administered in the state and is not a cause for concern. Vaccinations are now offered to anyone 16 and older in every state. In Nevada, health officials reported upticks in the statewide test positivity rate, to 5.9%, and added 698 new cases and three deaths to totals posted on the state coronavirus website.
