LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- The drive-thru COVID-19 vaccine and testing site at UNLV's Stan Fulton building will be closed Sunday, Sept. 19 for a special event.
The site operates in the buildings parking lot, and it's normal operating hours are Sunday through Thursday from 5:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. The site will be back open Monday, Sept. 20.
UNLV's drive-thru vaccine and testing site has the capacity to offer about 500 tests and 300 vaccinations each night on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last. All tests and vaccines are free.
So far the site has administered about 13,000 tests and more than 1,200 vaccinations since the beginning of operations during the first week of August. Tests are self-swab PCR tests. Results take about 72 hours to process.
Clark County, the Southern Nevada Health District, Nevada National Guard and Community Ambulance and other partners are operating the site. The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, requiring an initial two doses, and Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen one-shot vaccine are available at the UNLV location.
No appointments are necessary, but it is recommended visitors create an account with Color online before showing up. The account registration process enables clients to receive their test results through the phone number or email address they provide. A Color registration link for the Stan Fulton site is posted on the testing site calendar of the Southern Nevada Health District’s website at www.snhd.info/covid-testing.
