APS Hosts COVID-19 Vaccination Clinics

Albuquerque Public Schools is working with the city of Albuquerque, the state Department of Health, local pharmacies and more to help get our community vaccinated.

A shout out to APS employees who are working with the city, state, local businesses, and volunteers to get New Mexicans vaccinated.

In the past two months, APS has hosted nearly two dozen shot clinics at its schools and facilities, providing support staff to set up and tear down events, clean and sanitize before and after, help with traffic and crowd control, and provide vaccinations.

A special thanks to the APS nurses, police officers, custodians, school staff, Maintenance and Operations workers, and everyone else who has stepped up to help our community fight the virus.

As of early March, more than 6,000 doses of the vaccine have been given at 21 events. Sites used include Albuquerque, Cibola and West Mesa High Schools, Jefferson Middle School and the Berna Facio Professional Development Center.

The New Mexico Department of Health is leading the state's vaccination planning and implementation. If you haven't yet signed up to get the vaccine, you can do so through the NMDOH COVID-19 Vaccine Registration System.
