Area students up to age 18 can get free immunizations next weekend as part of the statewide back-to-school immunization clinics hosted by the the New Mexico Department of Health.

The clinic for Chaves County will occur Saturday, July 28, from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the Health Office, 200 E. Chisum St.

Parents are asked to bring a copy of their child’s immunization record and an insurance card, including Medicaid, with them. But immunizations will be provided for free if no insurance is available.

New Mexico birth certificates also can be obtained with photo identification and a $10 payment.

The special clinics are part of the Got Shots? immunization campaign statewide to prepare students and their families for the upcoming academic year. The New Mexico Department of Health, the New Mexico Immunization Coalition, the New Mexico Primary Care Association and healthcare providers are partnering to provide the clinics for youth from July 29 through Aug. 12 at various locations in New Mexico
