State Board of Health to Consider Vaccine Requirement

Dear CSN Family,

Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak has announced that the state Board of Health will consider mandating COVID-19 vaccinations for all Nevada System of Higher Education students at its September 3 meeting.

As you know, the COVID-19 landscape continues to rapidly evolve. Last week, the governor gave updates on the increasing transmission rate and state employees’ vaccination and/or testing requirements, and encouraged those who are eligible to get vaccinated.

If the Board of Health approves mandating vaccinations for NSHE students, students would be required to complete the vaccination process and demonstrate proof prior to registration and enrollment as soon as the Spring 2022 semester.

CSN has partnered with the Southern Nevada Health District to make COVID-19 testing and vaccinations available at the Charleston and North Las Vegas campuses. In the coming weeks, vaccinations as well as testing will also be available at the Henderson campus. In addition, vaccinations are available throughout Southern Nevada including neighborhood pharmacies and pop-up sites. Please refer to for a location near you to obtain or complete the vaccination as soon as possible.

We will continue to bring the CSN community updated information as it becomes available in collaboration with our health and safety and emergency management partners across Southern Nevada. We ask that the CSN family continue to be flexible should the need arise to revise direction. Please continue to utilize for communication regarding cases, close contacts, testing, and any questions regarding COVID-19.

Take care and be safe.

Thank you.
