Will NSC be offering choices of the vaccine? 

  • Yes, attendees have the choice to receive the Pfizer, Moderna, or Janssen vaccine.

Do I have to come back to NSC for my second shot? 

  • No, but you can! We will have vaccine clinics spaced 28 days apart, so you are able to come back for your second shot here. You are also free to schedule your second shot appointment elsewhere.

If I got my first shot many months ago and never went back, can I still come get my second shot?

  • Yes. If you received your first COVID-19 vaccine in Nevada, you can come in and get your second dose as long as your first Pfizer dose was received over 21 days ago or your first Moderna dose was received over 28 days ago.  Please note that per CDC guidelines, “You should get your second shot as close to the recommended 3-week or 4-week interval as possible. However, your second shot may be given up to 6 weeks (42 days) after the first dose, if necessary.”

Will my privacy be protected?

  • Yes. Everyone’s privacy is protected. Getting the vaccine will not affect immigrant status.

Can I bring my friends and family?

  • Absolutely. The COVID-19 Vaccine Clinics are open to everyone.

Will I be able to receive my booster shot? 

  • For now, 3rd dose eligibility applies only to severely immunocompromised individuals. Contact coronavirus@nsc.edu to find out if you fall into an approved category for immunocompromised individuals.

Why get a COVID-19 vaccine? 

  •  COVID-19 vaccines are effective at helping protect against severe disease and death from variants of the virus that causes COVID-19 currently circulating. If enough Nevadans are vaccinated, we can keep businesses, restaurants and schools open.
  • Widespread vaccination will end this pandemic the way it ended smallpox, polio, and measles.
