Immunization clinic planned

Staff Report

A back-to-school immunization clinic will be offered on Aug. 1, 2, 9 and 12, at the New Mexico Department of Health’s Quay County Public Health Office at 310 South Second Street in Tucumcari.

The immunization clinics are open to the public from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. 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.

The special clinic is part of the Got Shots? Protect Tots! 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 July 30 to Aug. 13 for children 18 years old and younger.

For more information on the no-charge immunization clinic, call the Quay County Public Health Office at (575) 461-2610.
