COVID-19 Vaccine FAQ & Resources

Is Northern Nevada HOPES vaccinating HOPES patients?
Not yet. We hope to begin doing so once we have reliable access to the vaccine and can provide it to scheduled patients who are eligible. Additionally, we hope to direct our patients to other vaccine clinics for those not needing an appointment for other medical care. We are working closely with Washoe County, the state and HRSA, in hopes that we can be part of the solution in the near future. If/When we are able to begin, we will follow the County priority guidance.
