Las Cruces Public Schools will continue its partnership with the New Mexico Department of Health and the Office of Emergency Management in coordinating summer COVID-19 vaccination clinics for students and staff who are interested in receiving one.
The specific vaccine approved for the summer COVID-19 vaccination clinics will be the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine. Both the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) concur that the vaccine may prevent serious or life-threatening disease and that the known and potential benefits of the product outweigh the known and potential risks of the product.
*In order to receive a vaccine, you must register by creating a profile for your child with the New Mexico Department of Health at cvvaccine.nmhealth.org and enter the event code for the location you will be attending.
