LCPS: COVID Vaccine Clinics Open to Children Ages 5 to 11


EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – Officials in Las Cruces announced Thursday that, through a partnership with the New Mexico Department of Health and the Office of Emergency Management, Las Cruces Public Schools will host a series of clinics for children ages 5 to 11 to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

Additionally, the clinics will also offer flu vaccinations to anyone eligible to receive a flu shot.  

The first clinic will be Saturday, Nov. 13 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Dr. Karen M. Trujillo Administration Complex, 505 S. Main Street in Las Cruces.

The exact location will be at the southwest end of the building, where the former Department of Motor Vehicles office was located.  

Parents will need to register their child online with the NMDOH using the event code BNYSPNZ

If your child does not already have a profile with the NMDOH COVID Vaccine Registration portal, you will need to first create one. Printed and signed consent forms will also be required, but a limited number of forms will be made available at the clinic for those who do not have access to a printer.
