The clinic will be held at the Rio Arriba, 2010 Industrial Park Road, in Española NM. The immunization clinic is open to the public and immunizations will be administered at no cost. All parents have to do is bring a copy of their child’s shot record and Medicaid or private health insurance card if they have one.

Provides opportunities for children to stay up-to-date on their immunizations. Participating providers open their doors for any child who presents for immunizations, regardless of whether he/she is a patient or whether he/she has insurance.

The special clinic is part of the Got Shots? immunization campaign. The New Mexico Department of Health, the New Mexico Immunization Coalition (NMIC), the New Mexico Primary Care Association (NMPCA), and healthcare providers from across the state are partnering again to host immunization clinics from August 2nd through the 16th for children 18 years old and younger.

Childhood immunizations are the most effective preventive health intervention, resulting in a 90% reduction in vaccine preventable diseases since the 1950s. Immunizations are required for children attending day care and school.
