LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- Health officials on Friday announced that a drive-thru COVID-19 vaccination clinic will be held at the Texas Station in North Las Vegas beginning May 11.

According to the Southern Nevada Health District, shots of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine will be administered from 7 a.m. until noon seven days a week at the drive-thru clinic.

The site will offer first doses of the vaccine for three weeks. Cassell noted that second doses will then be offered three weeks after the initial shot. The second doses will also be offered for three weeks.

The vaccine site will be run National Guard in conjunction with the Southern Nevada Health District. The clinic will close on June 14.

Officials are planning to administer 1,000 doses per day. However, they could  likely go up to 1,200 if needed, Cassell said.

Appointments will be required. They will be available through the Southern Nevada Health District: snhd.info/covid-vaccine.
