Official: Thousands Without Nevada Addresses Vaccinated Here

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — The head of Nevada's coronavirus response effort acknowledges that almost 58,000 people who received coronavirus vaccine shots in the state didn't provide in-state addresses.

But COVID-19 Task Force chief Caleb Cage said that's a small number compared with the nearly 1.7 million doses of vaccine administered in the state and is not a cause for concern.

Vaccinations are now offered to anyone 16 and older in every state. In Nevada, health officials reported upticks in the statewide test positivity rate, to 5.9%, and added 698 new cases and three deaths to totals posted on the state coronavirus website.
