Where can I get a flu shot?

HealthMap Vaccine Finder is a free, online service where users can search for locations that offer immunizations. We work with partners such as clinics, pharmacies, and health departments to provide accurate and up-to-date information about vaccination services. Our goal is to make it simple for users to find a place to be immunized.

Most drug store chains offer flu immunizations, as do most primary care physicians as well as local urgent care facilities.

The New Mexico Department of Health offers vaccinations for people without insurance or who are otherwise not able to get vaccinated. Those with Medicaid or other health insurance should bring their insurance cards with them to the clinic.

For information on locations in your area visit our Public Health Offices page or use the HealthMap Vaccine Finder website.
