What to Expect

The last day to receive a first dose COVID-19 vaccine through Renown will be Wednesday, May 12. Make an appointment through MyChart or come to the drive-thru at 10315 Professional Circle, Reno, NV from 12-2 p.m. on Wednesday, May 12 when there are no appointments needed. Minors ages 16 and 17 must be with a parent or guardian to receive the vaccine. For assistance, please call 775-982-2781. Our vaccine clinic will remain open until all individuals who receive their first dose of the vaccine through Renown have the opportunity to receive their second dose.

After Getting the Vaccine at Renown’s Drive Thru

After you receive the vaccine, our team will direct you to an observation area where you will wait for 15 minutes. Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) and support volunteers patrol the area and may ask how you are feeling.

As with all vaccinations, there is potential for injection site reactions (redness, swelling and pain) as well as fever, fatigue, headache, chills, vomiting, diarrhea, muscle pain and/or joint pain.

More Information about Vaccines


The CDC has learned of reports that some people have experienced severe allergic reactions—also known as anaphylaxis—after getting a COVID-19 vaccine. As an example, an allergic reaction is considered severe when a person needs to be treated with epinephrine—or EpiPen©—or if they must go to the hospital.

Further allergic reaction information can be found on the CDC website.
