A report from Governor Steve Sisolak indicates that although Nevada has been receiving a lot anti-Covide-19 shots, Nevada should get more vaccines for those who need them.
In an update provided from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), based on federal data Nevada has received over 324,000 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine and has administered 248,000 doses — or 76.7 percent of doses received in the State.
Nevada is currently leading all states and territories in FEMA Region 9 when it comes to percent of doses administered.
The Governor said, “I could not be more proud of Nevada’s immunization program for continuing to push forward and make sure that we are distributing doses of the COVID-19 vaccine as fast as we can. These numbers are a result of a statewide concentrated effort to use every resource at our disposal and to focus our collective efforts on this historic immunization effort, in addition to the additional federal assistance the Biden-Harris Administration has provided.
The Governor continued, “While we are still not getting the number of doses we’d like, the State and our local partners are efficiently administering the doses we currently receive. I will continue to fight for more doses for Nevada, and as more are delivered to the State, we will continue to increase our efforts.”
