Boulder City’s mobile COVID–19 vaccination clinics are coming to your neighborhood August 3, 5 and 7, 2021. Get the vaccine, get entered into a drawing.  Prizes include: two awards of $2,500, five awards of $1,000, as well as Boulder City Golf Packages, Fitness Center Passes, Pool Passes, Racquetball Passes and a hockey stick autographed by Nicolas Roy of the Vegas Golden Knights (Certificate of Authenticity)!

Just stop at the mobile units during the times posted, get the shot, and you have a shot at winning prizes in the drawing. If you have already been vaccinated, you are also eligible for prizes! Just fill out the waiver (found at www.bcnv.org/COVID-19) and bring it to one of the vaccination sites, or email it to us at covidprize@bcnv.org.  The vaccine is free. For more details and eligibility visit www.bcnv.org/COVID-19.  Anyone who is eligible for the vaccine can be vaccinated during the event, regardless of where they live. To be eligible for prizes, you must be a Boulder City resident or work for a business in Boulder City - must supply proof of employment.  (Employees of the City of Boulder City are not eligible to win prizes.)

The City will announce the winners online on August 19. "Some people have been waiting to get vaccinated; as we’ve seen in Nevada and other states, prizes have motivated some people to get vaccinated more than the health benefits," said Michael Mays, Acting City Manager.  "We’ve seen quite an uptick in cases during this recent surge. 8,000 people in Boulder City have been vaccinated so far. We are trying to reach herd immunity - typically 70-percent." 

The same paramedics who ran the City vaccination clinics will be administering the vaccine. They have been trained and were highly successful in earlier clinics. "We’re asking residents who have not yet been vaccinated to consider the science behind the vaccine," said Fire Chief Will Gray.  "One video that breaks it down is here: https://youtu.be/35Idb_lCU4o - we’ve heard from several people who, after viewing it, decided to get vaccinated, protecting themselves and their loved ones."

The City is utilizing American Rescue Plan funds received from the federal government to pay out these prizes. It is an appropriate and approved expenditure for promoting vaccinations, according to federal officials.
