Daily Update- September 14, 2020 Emergency Immunization Reg, Trump Visit

Today, Governor Sisolak signed an emergency regulation to support widespread immunization efforts to help the State prepare for a potential COVID-19 vaccine. The regulation, approved and requested by the Nevada State Board of Pharmacy, authorizes pharmaceutical technicians with appropriate training to administer immunizations under the direct supervision of a pharmacist. This emergency regulation will allow pharmacies to meet the increased demand for vaccine services and increase the State’s capacity to expediently treat Nevada’s population when a viable COVID-19 vaccine is developed and deployed.  The full regulation can be found HERE.

Yesterday, Governor Sisolak issued the following statement on President Trump’s actions in Nevada over the weekend: 

“Tonight, President Donald Trump is taking reckless and selfish actions that are putting countless lives in danger here in Nevada. Despite reports from his own White House, despite local officials in Southern and Northern Nevada reiterating to the venues the existing restrictions in State emergency directives, tonight, the President of the United States is knowingly packing thousands of people into an indoor venue to hold a political rally.”

The Governor’s full remarks can be read HERE.
