Vice president touts infrastructure proposal, urges Nevadans to get vaccinated during Las Vegas stop

During a visit to Las Vegas on Saturday, Vice President Kamala Harris told members of the Carpenters Union that “frankly, [Nevada has] got to do better” in getting more of its residents vaccinated. The statement comes after the White House announced last week that the U.S. will not hit its July 4 target of getting 70 percent of adults nationwide to get at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

The announcement of the program, called “Vax Nevada Days,” comes as the state lags behind President Joe Biden’s goal of having 70 percent of adults at least partially vaccinated by July 4 — as of June 16, the state has at least partially vaccinated 59.4 percent of the adult population, a mark that ranks 33rd among the 50 states.
