“The ‘Joints for Jabs’ events are a small but critical component in encouraging our communities to get vaccinated and boosted,” said Brandon Wiegand, president of the Nevada Cannabis Dispensary Association and chief commercial officer of The Source+. “Dispensaries in Nevada receive thousands of visitors and offer a great opportunity to bring vaccinations directly to our customers.” 

Nevada recently lifted its mask mandate, although health officials continue to emphasize that COVID-19 is still highly contagious, and information from the Nevada State Public Health Laboratory stated that the variant accounts for 100% of the recent cases across the state. 

“Even with the recent lift on Nevada’s mask mandate, the health and safety of our community remain a top priority for our staff and customers,” said CEO of The Source+, Simon Nankervis “We’re excited to offer our customers an easy opportunity to get caught up on all vaccine and booster shots, as well as incentivize them to do so.”  

Widely recognized as Nevada’s trusted resource for immunizations and community health, Immunize Nevada has increased the vaccination rates of Nevada’s children, teens, adults, and seniors; ensuring adequate public health resources; training healthcare professionals; and expanding health collaborations.

The Source+ has prioritized giving back to its communities since its inception, supporting local partners by donating over $700,000 to local nonprofits, including Opportunity Village, Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation of Nevada, The Nevada Homeless Alliance, Mondays Dark and more.
