BOULDER CITY – Boulder City Fire Department and Boulder City Hospital will start booking appointments today, March 29, for all individuals ages 18 years and up. The vaccines will be distributed starting April 5, as Governor Sisolak recently announced. The City provides the Moderna vaccine, which can only be given to those 18 and older. For those individuals ages 16 & 17, check with a health care provider or retail pharmacy for options.

“This is a monumental step forward – something I have been looking forward to seeing for the past year,” said Mayor Kiernan McManus. “This will allow us to get even closer to herd immunity, and hopefully make our most vulnerable residents feel safe going about their daily tasks.”

As of March 18, more than 6,000 doses had been delivered in Boulder City, with 2,900 people receiving at least one dose. “Boulder City has had a great success rate, getting nearly 20-percent of the residents vaccinated to date,” said Boulder City Fire Chief Will Gray.  “Even better is our rate with the 65+ residents. We’ve provided at least one dose to more than 60-percent of this age group so far.”  

Appointments can be scheduled by calling Boulder City Parks and Recreation at 702.293.9256 Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m.-3 p.m. Do not leave a message, send emails or try to contact other staff. You must speak directly with a scheduler to secure an appointment.  Those without an appointment will be refused. Your second appointment (to complete two-dose the series) will be scheduled for the same time 28 days later. 

Clinics are held at the Elaine K. Smith Building, 700 Wyoming St, and the Boulder City Hospital, 901 Adams Blvd, both in Boulder City. There is no charge for vaccinations. The Smith Building clinics will run Monday through Thursday, from 8:00 a.m.-noon and 1 p.m.-3:00 p.m. Boulder City Hospital vaccination hours are Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m.-5 p.m.  

NEW TESTING LOCATION: The City also continues to provide free drive-up testing, which will now be held at Bullock Airfield (located on Bullock Field Drive, south of Boulder City Parkway). The hours are from 8 a.m.-noon and 1 p.m. – 3 p.m. on Tuesdays only.  Visit www.bcnv.org/COVID-19 for updates to vaccinations and testing clinics. No appointment is necessary, but you can expedite the process by filling out the questionnaire at this link one to six hours before you arrive: http://bcnv.org/testing.
