MYTH: You Will Be Asked About Your Immigration Status

No one is asked about their immigration status. No immigration information is collected. Immigration is staying away from vaccination clinics. Anyone is eligible for a vaccine.

MYTH: No Biligual Services

We have translators available. Let us know if you have questions or if you need a translator. Register for your vaccine on the NMDOH website in English, Spanish or Vietnamese.

MYTH: You Need Insurance

The COVID-19 vaccines are 100% free for everyone, with or without insurance. If you have insurance, you may be asked to show your health insurance card. If you do not have insurance, you will still receive the vaccine for free.
