The Linq is next stop on Strip for #VivaVaxVegas vaccination clinic

Updated July 23, 2021 - 10:44 am

The #VivaVaxVegas brings its efforts to The Linq Promenade at Jimmy Kimmel’s Comedy Club on Saturday for another Strip-side vaccination clinic offering prizes to those who get a shot.

The entertainment-filled clinic is scheduled from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, according to a news release. It is presented through a partnership between the state, Immunize Nevada, the Nevada Resort Association, and other partners.

Anyone 12 or older who has not been vaccinated is encouraged to walk in and take advantage of this opportunity, free of charge. No ID or proof of insurance will be required. Those who are vaccinated will be entered in a raffle with giveaways provided by Caesars Entertainment Resorts.

Hundreds of prizes include Usher tickets, helicopter rides, over-the-top hotel packages, Kindle Fire tablets, signed Raiders gear and much more.

Parking is available in the surface lot behind the High Roller Observation Wheel. Self-parking is free for locals with a Nevada ID.

Eligible Nevadans who initiate vaccination on Saturday will be included in the Vax Nevada Days program.

Last week, #VivaVaxVegas was conducted at Park MGM.
