Updated COVID-19 Vaccine Information

Dear CSN Family,

As you may be aware, the Southern Nevada NSHE institutions are partnering to provide COVID-19 vaccinations to those who are working in frontline roles in health care, public safety, law enforcement, public health and emergency first response, both within NSHE institutions and in the broader community. Since we began this effort on Monday, more than 2,000 people have received vaccinations at the UNLV site. A second site, located at our CSN Henderson Campus Student Union, will open on Thursday, January 21.

We are preparing to notify the next two priority employee groups to register for their appointment to receive their first vaccination in the coming weeks. The first group, as defined by the state’s latest vaccination playbook, is instructional and administrative faculty, staff, students and contractors who must work on campus in close contact with others, and who cannot and have not been able to conduct their job duties remotely. Next are those faculty, staff and students age 70 or older whether on-campus or remote. Registrations are non-transferrable as they are based on an employee’s role, which will be verified when employees arrive for vaccination.

Human Resources is working with the vice presidents to confirm or obtain updated names of faculty and staff working in these roles. Notifications will go to each individual and will be sent from Patricia.Charlton@csn.edu, the COVID-19 CSN Lead. If you do not receive notification and you believe you fall into this category, faculty should contact their respective dean, and staff should contact their vice president. 

We are in a rapidly changing environment and we encourage you to visit the COVID-19-vaccine  webpage for updated information based on guidance as it is released. You may also contact wellness@csn.edu with questions. We are working with our colleagues at UNLV, NSC, and DRI to ensure coordinated messaging and processes and in adherence to state guidelines. Please see Chancellor Melody Rose’s latest communication on vaccine distribution within NSHE.

NSHE is partnering with the Southern Nevada Health District and the state to provide vaccinations to everyone in our university community as expeditiously as possible. Thank you for your patience.

Stay safe and God bless.

Federico Zaragoza
President
College of Southern Nevada
