COVID-19 vaccination center opening at Encore Resort Las Vegas

14 January 2021

(PRESS RELEASE) -- The UMC COVID-19 Vaccination Center will open its doors at Encore Resort at Wynn Las Vegas on Monday, 18 January.

The UMC COVID-19 Vaccination Center will operate Monday – Friday, with the ability to increase hours as the program expands. It is conveniently located in the resort's convention space near the Encore self-parking garage. Vaccines at the Center are available to residents of Nevada who are eligible under the current State of Nevada vaccination guidelines.

This unique partnership was formed to increase distribution of the vaccine throughout the Las Vegas Valley at a convenient location, and to assist in the state's recovery from the pandemic.

"We offered Encore as a vaccination location to help facilitate vaccine distribution as quickly and efficiently as possible throughout the Las Vegas Valley," said Matt Maddox, CEO of Wynn Resorts. "Our partnership with UMC began with our extensive onsite employee testing program. Based upon the success of that program with UMC, we look forward to hosting this critical step in our state's economic and health recovery."

"The UMC COVID-19 Vaccination Center at Encore will serve as a valuable asset to our community as we work together to protect our most vulnerable populations and eventually bring an end to the COVID-19 pandemic," said UMC CEO Mason Van Houweling. "UMC's world-class health care team members look forward to working alongside our trusted partners at Wynn Resorts to build a brighter, healthier future for Southern Nevada."

The Encore location will replace UMC's existing COVID-19 vaccination clinic at UMC's Delta Point Building. All UMC vaccination appointments scheduled on or after January 18 will take place at the Encore location.
