The site had been planning a delayed opening Friday with longer hours on Saturday. 

“Due to winter weather safety concerns, we are closing the Clark County mass vaccination site Friday and Saturday,” the department said in a news release. “If you have an appointment scheduled for either of these days, you will be able to get your COVID-19 vaccine next week. All appointments have been rescheduled for Tuesday. Staff on site will honor your first dose appointment anytime during operating hours, which are 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. Feb. 16.”
