Today, Governor Sisolak joined with Nevada DHHS to provide an update on Nevada’s COVID-19 Vaccination Program Playbook for Statewide Operations that was submitted to (CDC) on Oct. 16. The playbook was put together by the Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health.
The Playbook is a draft that the Nevada State Immunization Program will use and update as more information becomes available from the CDC and the FDA related to the release of a COVID-19 vaccine. While a vaccine is not currently approved for use, the NV DHHS anticipates only receiving a small amount of vaccine when it is distributed and through the plan has developed priorities for immunizations for high-risk populations.
In addition to the vaccine update, Governor Sisolak announced that he has a goal to open conventions up to 50% capacity by January 1, 2021.
