Aug 18, 2023

Aug. 18, 2023. Reno/Sparks, Nev.– The Washoe County Health District (WCHD) reminds parents who need to get children vaccinated of the final back-to-school vaccine clinic this Saturday, August 19.

WCHD is joining several community organizations to offer vaccines that are required by the State of Nevada to attend a public, private or charter school (see list of vaccines here). The bivalent COVID-19 vaccine will also be available.

Saturday, Aug. 19, 2023

  • Back to School Vaccine Clinic, Washoe County Health District clinic, 1001 E. 9th, Building B, 8 a.m.-noon or until capacity is reached. Schedule vaccine appointment here. If no appointments are available, walk-ins are welcome but will be seen on a first come, first serve basis.

There are several other ways to get your children vaccinated. Contact your doctor, or see other community events from Community Health Alliance and other partners here:

  • Children must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian
  • Requirement: Bring your current vaccine records with you – obtain them from your doctor or at NV WebIZ.
  • Warm weather is expected, and patients could experience longer-than-normal wait times so it’s recommended patients eat beforehand and be properly hydrated. Staff will be working hard to serve families as quickly as possible
