Gov. Steve Sisolak is expected to announce a timeline to make vaccines available to those who are not yet eligible in Nevada at a Wednesday evening news conference, according to the Associated Press.
The number of new coronavirus cases and deaths continues to be far fewer in the state than in the prior months when Nevada experienced a surge. Roughly 360,000 Nevadans have been fully vaccinated, which is about 11.8% of their total population.
President Joe Biden announced plans last week to make all Americans 18 and older eligible for vaccines within two months. Governors throughout the U.S. are now working to ensure their vaccine plans will allow all adults in their states to be eligible by May 1.
