LAS VEGAS (AP) — Another new drive-thru COVD-19 vaccination site is about to open in Las Vegas.

Health officials this past week opened a new drive-thru site last Tuesday at the Las Vegas Convention Center. A second drive-thru location will open next Tuesday at the shuttered Texas Station Hotel & Casino northwest of downtown.

Dr. Fermin Leguen, chief health officer for the Southern Nevada Health District, recently said officials “are committed to increasing access and providing as many opportunities for people to get the COVID-19 vaccine as possible.”

According to Leguen, vaccinations are “the best way to protect yourself and others from COVID-19.”

The Texas Station site will be located on the first floor of the property’s parking garage and operate 7 a.m. to noon seven days a week for six weeks to accommodate a full cycle of first- and second-dose appointments of the Pfizer vaccine.

First doses will be offered weeks one through three of the clinic and second doses during weeks four through six. Appointments are now available at

The Texas Station site will also offer COVID-19 testing.
