Nevada Expected To Update Vaccine Eligibility Timeline

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Gov. Steve Sisolak is expected to announce a timeline to make vaccines available to those who are not yet eligible in Nevada at a Wednesday evening news conference.

The number of new coronavirus cases and deaths continues to be far fewer than in prior months, when Nevada experienced a surge.

Roughly 360,000 Nevada residents have been fully vaccinated. President Joe Biden announced plans last week to make all Americans 18 and older eligible for vaccines within two months.
