Health Cards in Las Vegas (Food Handler Safety Program)
When applying for several occupations in Nevada, a person may need a Health Card.  Health Cards are 100% mandatory in order to obtain any food handlers. On January 2, 2013 the Health Card program was replaced with the new Body Art Card and Food Handler Safety Training and Certification Program. All food handlers are now required to get a Food Handler Safety Training Card instead of a Health Card. Some occupations other than food handlers may still have mandated training or screening for certification.

The total cost of a Food Handler Safety Training card is $40; $20 for the card and $20 for the training. An additional $15 is charged to renew an expired card.

Online food safety training must be completed before coming to the health district to get the card.

Persons needing the Food Handler Safety Training card must complete the Vegas PBS training.

You must complete the food safety training before applying for a Food Handler Safety Training card.

The food safety training fee is payable to Southern Nevada Public Television/Vegas PBS at the time of registration. The balance of fees is paid at the health district during the application process.

Everyone applying for a food handler health card needs a Hepatitis A vaccination.
