The UNLV Paradise campus is now home to the drive-thru COVID-19 vaccine and testing clinic, where the National Guard and local-firefighters aid in administering the services.
On Oct. 4, the UNLV Stan Fulton location closed down to move the community service to a less popular entrance at the Paradise campus. According to a firefighter on location, they were serving over 100 people a day, but now, roughly about 30 people are coming by to get tested or vaccinated.
The Community Ambulance, the National Guard, Clark County Nevada, the Southern Nevada Health District and other community partners are involved with this site. All three vaccines for COVID-19 are offered. The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines require two doses while the Janssen vaccine requires one shot.
The swab test is self-administered, with someone there to help explain how to best test yourself. Results should come back in about 72 hours of testing, for the PCR test.
There is no appointment necessary for either getting tested or receiving a vaccine. Booster shots are available for those who have the Pfizer vaccine and are at risk.
Currently, drive-thru hours are Sunday through Thursday from 5:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. The site is open to all members of the community and the entrance is located on the side of the Paradise Campus on 900 Radkovich Ave. and 4900 Bock St.
