As the new school year approaches, the New Mexico Department of Health is working with several partners to make sure all children in New Mexico are immunized by the time school starts.
The NMDOH’s “Got Shots?” campaign provides opportunities for children to stay up-to-date on their immunizations. During “Got Shots?” participating providers open their doors for any child for immunizations, regardless of whether they are a patient or whether they have insurance.
The New Mexico Department of Health has partnered with the New Mexico Primary Care Association and the New Mexico Immunization Coalition, along with managed care partners, Presbyterian, Western Sky Community Care and Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Mexico for the campaign.
“Got Shots?” began Monday and runs through Aug. 31. There are two participating locations in Sandoval County.
- El Pueblo Health Services in Bernalillo will be giving shots Monday-Friday from 8 a.m.-noon and 1-5 p.m.
- Sandoval County Health Commons in Bernalillo has shots Monday-Thursday from 8:30-11 a.m. and 1-4 p.m. and Friday from 8:30-11 a.m. On Aug. 5, shots will be given at the Cuba Public Health Office from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
Appointments are preferred but not required.
