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.

Nevada health officials are redoubling efforts to make it easier to get COVID-19 shots to try to reverse a decline in vaccinations statewide. They include new drive-thru clinics in working-class neighborhoods in Las Vegas and expanded outreach to Reno’s Hispanic community. The 14-day rolling average in the number of vaccine doses administered on a daily basis in Nevada is down about 31% since April 15. It’s the lowest average rate of daily vaccinations since early March and the first time it’s dropped below 18,000 since March 10. Health officials said Monday 30% of the statewide population 16 or older is now fully vaccinated.
