COVID-19 Vaccine FAQ
COVID-19 Vaccine FAQ & Resources
Is Northern Nevada HOPES vaccinating HOPES patients?
- HOPES will be offering vaccines to any patient at HOPES who has a scheduled medical appointment that is at least 18 years old.
- HOPES is not providing a second dose vaccination to patients who received their vaccine at a location other than HOPES.
- HOPES is not able to vaccinate patients who are less than 18. Only the Pfizer vaccine is available to this age group, a vaccine that requires special freezers and handling.
Currently the Washoe County Health Department and several pharmacies are offering this vaccine.
- Patients who call and want a vaccine will be offered a medical appointment if they have not been seen in the last two years.
- We HOPE to have a vaccine to provide during the medical visit, but it is NOT guaranteed.
All COVID vaccines have strict requirements for use (like not opening a vial if you can’t use all the doses). If for some reason we are unable to supply it during your appointment, we can bring you back at a different time, when we are likely to have available vaccine.
- If a patient has recently had a medical appointment and would like to get a vaccine, they can call HOPES to get more information.
