Las Cruces Says, “Boo to the flu!” with No Cost Flu Vaccinations Offered at Two Local Hospitals
Drive-thru and Walk-in Service Provided Saturday, October 26th

Memorial Medical Center, MountainView Regional Medical Center and the New Mexico Department of Health (NMDOH) will simultaneously host Boo to the Flu, the annual flu vaccination event in Las Cruces, at each hospital Saturday, October 26th. Flu shots will be available from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at both locations or while supplies last.

There is no charge for the vaccinations, but anyone with insurance should bring their insurance card, including Medicaid or Medicare, with them.

Drive-thru and walk-in service will be provided for adults. Families with children under 18-years-old will be required to park and enter either the Memorial Medical Center West Annex Building (Enter the north side of MMC’s parking lot from Terrace Drive between Telshor and Don Roser), or the MountainView Children’s Center Building located at 4401 East Lohman Avenue. To expedite the process, visit Mountain View Regional Medical Center or the Memorial Medical Center to download consent forms to bring with you on the day of the clinic.

The NMDOH recommends everyone six months of age and older get a flu vaccine each flu season, especially people in the following groups who are at high risk or live with and care for people at high risk for developing serious flu‐related complications, such as hospitalization and death:
