New Mexico Immunization Program Website
Vaccine Preventable Disease
Vaccines aren’t just for kids! Adults need vaccines to protect against many serious diseases. Vaccines protect you and also keep you from spreading illness to others. See the CDC links below to learn which immunizations are recommended for adults.
Immunization Recommendations for Healthcare Workers
Healthcare facilities in New Mexico should follow the ACIP/CDC Immmunization of Health-Care Personnel (2011) recommendations for their staff. A shorter guide from the Immunization Action Coalition can be found at Healthcare Personnel Vaccination Recommendations.
Where can adults get vaccines in New Mexico?
The best place to get vaccinated is at your doctor's office, so check with your provider first. If you are unable to obtain the vaccines you need from your provider, you may be able to get certain vaccines from special seasonal clinics, commercial pharmacies, or travel clinics. Some adults may qualify for certain immunizations at Public Health Offices.
No public clinics for shingles vaccine are currently scheduled in New Mexico. Please check with your medical care provider for shingles vaccine availability.
