INFLUENZA VACCINE NEWS
CDC's Seasonal Flu Vaccine page has detailed information on seasonal flu immunization.
Where can I get a flu shot? New Mexicans wishing to get a flu shot should first contact their regular health care provider. If they do not have access to a health care provider, or if their provider does not have flu vaccine, they may check the Heathmap flu vaccine finder database, contact their local Public Health Office for information on where they can get a flu shot, or call the New Mexico Nurse Advice Line at 1-866-681-5872. Some clinics may require cash, check, or Medicare Part B forms for payment.
DOH and CDC links for more information: The New Mexico Department of Health Seasonal Influenza Information Page includes links to the New Mexico Weekly Flu Reports. Flu vaccination protocols for public health offices can be found in the DOH Public Health Division 2013-2014 Seasonal Influenza Vaccination Protocols. Providers may wish to download New Mexico DOH Fight the Flu graphic.
