COVID-19 Vaccine for Nevada Optometrists and Staff

Optometrists and staff in Nevada are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Immunize Nevada is a great resource regarding the COVID-19 vaccine including County Resources (outlined below) as well as the COVID-19 vaccine interest form the State of Nevada has created for businesses and individuals.

If in doubt about what to do to get your COVID-19 Vaccine, fill out the State of Nevada's COVID-19 vaccine Interest form and follow up by contacting your local health department. 

Please remember to bring the following required documents to your appointment:

  • Appointment confirmation email
  • Photo ID

Other important reminders:

  • The vaccine to be provided requires two (2) doses. The initial vaccination date will have a second vaccination date 21 or 28 days later which you will be required to return to receive the second dose. The location where you received your first dose will send you information regarding your second dose.
  • Any individual that is currently sick or under isolation or quarantine for COVID-19 is not eligible to receive the vaccine until they are symptom-free and/or released based on CDC guidelines.   
  • It is best practice to wait for 15 minutes after your vaccination before leaving the vaccination site.
  • Please wear clothing that allows quick and easy access to the upper arm.
  • Expect to wait. Due to high patient volume, wait times may vary.
  • If you need to cancel your appointment, please do so at least 24 hours in advance, so that someone else may sign up for that spot.
