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.

Officials say Nevada will have dozens of pop-up COVID-19 vaccination sites over the coming weeks and federal workers to help reach out to the unvaccinated as the state confronts a jump in virus cases and hospitalizations. Nevada has seen a 136% increase in hospitalizations of people with the coronavirus since May 31, the day before the state lifted most of its restrictions on businesses. Health officials said Thursday that the rate of hospitalizations has increased 62% over the last 14 days alone. Most of the cases are in southern Nevada and involved people who were not vaccinated.
