Pop-up vaccine clinics -- and freebies -- could help Las Vegas get to 100% reopening

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) -- To get capacity back to 100%, Clark County officials want to see a 60% COVID-19 vaccination rate.

Right now, we are hovering around 50% for those 18 and older.

The Southern Nevada Health District says Clark County commissioners will be discussing on Tuesday whether they need to make changes to the current mitigation plan. Meanwhile, SNHD is doing what it can to make vaccinations convenient with more pop-up clinics.

More and more people are getting the vaccine.

But is it enough?

It's a race against the clock. More vaccine pop-ups are planned, like the one outside the first Golden Knights playoff game. Another one is set for Tuesday's game.

The Clark County Fire Department is doing what it can, and the City of Henderson is making it easy with a clinic inside the Galleria mall... Read More
