Las Cruces Public Schools will continue its partnership with the New Mexico Department of Health and the Office of Emergency Management in coordinating summer COVID-19 vaccination clinics for students and staff who are interested in receiving one.

LCPS will be hosting two COVID-19 vaccination clinics on Wednesday, June 16. The first will be at Oñate High School from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. in the commons areas on the east side of the school. The second will be that afternoon at Mesilla Valley Leadership Academy from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.

The event code for the Oñate clinic is OHS1 and the code for MVLA is MVLA1. Attached to this message is a copy of the required consent form, and a fact sheet on the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccination.

The specific vaccine approved for the summer COVID-19 vaccination clinics will be the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine. Both the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) concur that the vaccine may prevent serious or life-threatening disease and that the known and potential benefits of the product outweigh the known and potential risks of the product.

Parent/guardian of any child under the age of 17 must complete the consent form which can be downloaded here. A fact sheet for Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 can be found here.

Below are dates and times for upcoming vaccination clinics. The district will notify LCPS families via email and provide event codes for each selected school site at LCPS.net as the information becomes available later this week.
