Nye County and County Emergency Management has launched a survey to gauge interest in the COVID-19 vaccine for residents aged 12-17.
The survey is available at https://www.nyecounty.net/FormCenter/Pfizer-Vaccine-Interest-Ages-1217-10/SURVEY-COVID19-Vaccination-for-Children—42
The survey asks parents if they would want their adolescent children to be vaccinated, how many children they have and in what part of the county they reside.
