There’s a new tool to help you schedule your COVID-19 vaccine appointment. Washoe County announced the new scheduling platform which will allow you to choose the brand of COVID-19 vaccine you want. As of Monday, residents 16 years and older are eligible for the vaccine. According to the county, the soonest available appointments are the week of April 12. When using the scheduling tool, you are asked to keep in mind the following: Be sure to select appointments at the Reno-Sparks Livestock Events Center, which is the ONLY location in Northern Nevada with appointments available through this platform. Those who are 16-17 years of age can only select the Pfizer vaccine – the Moderna and Janssen are only available to those age 18 and older. More details online at covid19washoevaccine.com.
