Taos Middle School is offering Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines to kids before the start of the school year.
The vaccine pop-up clinic, located at 235 Paseo Del Cañon in Taos, will provide shots to Taos County kids ages 12–18 years old, including children in Questa, Peñasco and local charter schools.
Parents can bring their children to Taos Middle School on July 21, between 1–6 p.m., for their first vaccine dose. Second and final doses will be administered on August 11, between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m.
“We’re really working on hitting that 70 percent vaccination rate between the middle school and the high school before we start school,” said Lynn Brashar, Director of Exceptional Programs at the Taos Municipal Schools District.
Parents can register online for the vaccine at vaccinenm.org and enter the code TAOSPS0721. A Parental consent form is available on the site.
For questions, parents should call the New Mexico Department of Health Covid Health Hotline at 1-855-600-3453.
