LAS VEGAS (AP) — Nevada health officials say people age 55 and older can self-report to their pharmacists any underlying health conditions that make them eligible to receive COVID-19 vaccinations.
A state statistics official said Tuesday that as eligibility broadened this week in the statewide coronavirus inoculation process, deaths from COVID-19 have fallen to an average of about four per day.
That number peaked at 40 per day in mid-January. Officials widened efforts to vaccinate people with underlying conditions, disabilities and the homeless at retail pharmacies, including at supermarkets.
It's being called a step toward getting more shots in more arms statewide.
