What: Sparks Fire Department, Immunize Nevada, and Alamo Casino and Travel Center are partnering to host a COVID-19 vaccine clinic for truckers and all community members 18+. No appointments are required and up to 100 doses of the one-dose Janssen (Johnson and Johnson) vaccine will be available. The federal government is providing the COVID-19 vaccine for free to everyone living in the United States, regardless of immigration or health insurance status.
COVID-19 Information: Masks must be worn at all times.
When: Friday, June 4 | 1:00 – 6:00 pm
Where: Alamo Casino and Travel Center, 1950 East Greg St. Sparks, NV 89431
Why: Immunization with a safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine is a critical component of the state and country’s strategy to reduce COVID-19-related illnesses, hospitalizations and deaths. The location was chosen to target long-haul truckers who may not be able to schedule appointments due to their work hours and travel (not knowing where they will be and when) which poses a great barrier to making sure our essential transportation workers are protected.
Community Partners: Immunize Nevada, Sparks Fire Department, Alamo Casino and Travel Center
