Vaccine Update

As of September 10, more than 73.4 percent of people 18 years of age and older in Clark County have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, and more than 68.4 percent of people eligible (people ages 12 and over) have also received at least one dose of the vaccine. Additionally, more than 60.3 percent of adults in Clark County are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. The total number of COVID-19 vaccine doses administered in Clark County 2,401,287. Additional vaccination information is available at www.snhd.info/covid-cases.

The Health District continues to emphasize the importance of getting vaccinated to slow the spread of the virus and stop the pandemic. The COVID-19 vaccines are highly effective at protecting people against severe illness, hospitalization and death, including disease caused by Delta and other variants circulating in Clark County.

No vaccine is 100 percent effective, and breakthrough infections among vaccinated people are expected.

Because vaccines are not 100 percent effective, as the number of people who are fully vaccinated goes up, the number of breakthrough cases will also increase.

As of Friday, September 10, the Health District is reporting 309,977 cases of COVID-19 in Clark County, an increase of 802 since yesterday. The Health District is also reporting 14 deaths bringing the total to 5,339. Additional information about COVID-19 cases is available at www.snhd.info/covid-case.
