Washoe County says it has 8,000 appointments available for COVID vaccinations, and is encouraging everyone to get vaccinated. The County is using a new scheduling software to make it easier to schedule vaccinations. The county is concerned about people who have received their first vaccine, but have not returned for their second shot. James English with the Washoe County Health District says there are about 2,000 people who have not received their second dose. Overall, 42.09% of Nevadans over the age of 16 have gotten at least one shot, according to the Nevada COVID website.
