Another gaming company runs vaccination clinics on site in its hotel casinos.
Golden Entertainment, Inc. employees and their families can sign up for a vaccine at a casino of their choice, including The Strat and Arizona Charlie’s Las Vegas locations. Wassermann and Edgewater in Laughlin; and Pahrump Nugget in Pahrump.
Golden is working with Albertson’s, Vons and Safeway to host the Clincs in April and May and to deliver both Johnson & Johnson and Pfizer vaccines, the company said on Friday.
Nearly 6,000 Nevadans work at Golden Casinos, PT tavern locations, and the operations of the Golden Gaming Route.
“The health and safety of our team members, their families and our guests is of the utmost importance,” said Chairman and CEO Blake Sartini in a statement. “As we are committed to helping the recovery of our Nevada hotel industry, we strongly encourage all of our team members to get vaccinated while we try to make it as convenient for them as possible.”
The company will incentivize its employees to get vaccinated through US $ 25 gift cards, “pouches and entry to win a stay at one of its homes.” Vaccinated employees also receive a 10 percent voucher that they can redeem at Albertson, Vons or Safeway.
Golden is the newest gaming company to host vaccination clinics in its casinos. Other Las Vegas casino operators also offer on-site clinics, including Red Rock Resorts Inc., Caesars Entertainment Inc., MGM Resorts International, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, and Las Vegas Sands Corp.
Nearly 23 percent of Nevadans 16 and older were fully vaccinated by Wednesday, according to the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services and the US Census Bureau.
The Golden Clinics offer vaccines to dependent children aged 16 or 17 who are accompanied by a parent and have photo identification. You are only eligible for Pfizer vaccines.
Golden employees and their families can visit mhealthsystem.com/GoldenVegasClinic to schedule an appointment in Las Vegas, mhealthsystem.com/GoldenLaughlinClinic in Laughlin, and mhealthsystem.com/GoldenPahrumpClinic in Pahrump.
