LAS VEGAS (AP) — Nevada's governor got a coronavirus vaccination along with grocery workers at a Las Vegas-area supermarket.
Gov. Steve Sisolak on Thursday called it important for Nevada residents to get vaccinations to protect themselves and to help the state's key tourism industry reopen.
The governor, a Democrat, is 67 and was diagnosed with COVID-19 in November. He received his shot on the day a newspaper reported that a rural Nevada county has yet to receive any doses of COVID-19 vaccine.
Esmeralda County has fewer than 1,000 residents and no hospital or supermarket. A sheriff's official says residents are getting vaccinated in other counties, Las Vegas and Reno.
