Weekday immunization clinics

The Health District also provides back-to-school immunizations at its clinic locations during normal business hours. Due to the COVID-19 response, the Health District is limiting the number of patients allowed in its clinics and immunization services are available by appointment only. Only one parent or guardian is allowed in the clinic with the child for services. Call (702) 759-0850 to schedule an appointment. Visit for clinic locations throughout Clark County.

Required vaccinations for school

The Clark County School District requires the following vaccinations for students enrolling in school: chickenpox (varicella), hepatitis A, hepatitis B, polio, tetanus-diphtheria-pertussis (DTaP and Tdap), quadrivalent meningitis, and measles-mumps-rubella (MMR). Parents who recently moved to Nevada should note hepatitis A vaccination is required in the state. Immunizations that were up to date in other states that do not require hepatitis A vaccination might not be current in Nevada. For a list of immunization requirements for school, visit Immunize Nevada’s Nevada School Requirements page.

Children entering 7th grade must be immunized against tetanus-diphtheria-pertussis (Tdap) as well as Neisseria meningitidis (meningitis) in the form of a quadrivalent meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MenACWY). The meningitis vaccine is also required for 8th through 12th grade students who are new to the Clark County School District. A booster dose of quadrivalent meningococcal conjugate and the meningococcal B vaccines are recommended for teens who are 16 to 18 years old.

Immunization records

Parents vaccinating a child at a Health District clinic should bring immunization records. Parents who cannot locate immunization records should contact their health care provider. If their children were immunized in Nevada, parents can also visit Nevada WebIZ, a statewide immunization registry, at or call Nevada WebIZ at (775) 684-5954.

The Health District continues to remind the public to stay home as much as possible, wear face coverings in public, wash hands frequently, and to stay home if they are sick. Up-to-date information about COVID-19, including daily reports, is available on the Health District website at
