COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution Groups

Thank you for your interest in our COVID-19 vaccination program. We appreciate your patience as we work to protect our community.

Renown follows and monitors all state, local and CDC guidelines for vaccine distribution. The Washoe County Health District recently re-categorized its priority order for the COVID-19 vaccine and removed its tier-based system. To help vaccinate residents of Washoe County, below are the priority groups Renown is currently working with.

Tier 1A

Renown Health is currently offering vaccine appointments to Tier 1A groups:

    • Physicians
    • Healthcare workers
    • Healthcare students performing clinical/hospital rotations
    • Healthcare/hospital volunteers

For Renown employees and medical staff: As we receive vaccines, we will notify you of open appointments via MyChart. If you have not already received or scheduled the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, please check your MyChart account for appointments as they become available.

Priority Group: 70+

Renown is pleased to begin distribution vaccines to residents of Washoe County age 70 and older at this time.
If you are a resident of Washoe County, age 70 and older, and would like to join the waiting list for an appointment at Renown’s Drive Thru vaccination clinic, please download Renown MyChart. Renown Health patients and members of Senior Care Plus and Hometown Health in this age group will be notified through their MyChart accounts as appointments become available. Once an appointment is made you will receive instructions on how to get your vaccine.
If you need assistance setting up a MyChart account, call 775-982-2781 for assistance (24/7). We appreciate your patience as call volumes are very high as we work to help all in our community.
Renown Health will contact you when it is time for you to receive your vaccine. Please do not contact your Renown doctor at this time to schedule a vaccine appointment. Instead, we encourage you to register for a Renown MyChart account if you have not already.

Additional distribution groups will be announced when information is available.

Renown Health is working with county and state health districts and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to distribute the initially available, limited supplies of COVID-19 vaccines. Due to limited resources and the limited vaccine availability, we appreciate your patience as we work to protect our community.

We will continue to provide updates on the progress of identifying and vaccinating the different groups on this website.

For further information on county vaccine distribution, visit the Washoe County Health District website.
