New Mexico Immunization Coalition

New Mexico Immunization Coalition


The New Mexico Immunization Coalition (NMIC) is a statewide public/private partnership established in 2003 with the goal of  improving New Mexico's immunization rates.

The NMIC coordinates many activities and events – from an annual statewide back-to-school immunization campaign, to hosting immunization expert speakers from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Its focus is to provide up-to-date immunization information to health care providers, increase accessibility to vaccinations and remove barriers so that all New Mexicans get immunized.

The NMIC is supported by the New Mexico Department of Health and the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center. 


Our Priorities

The NMIC has five priority areas:

  • Public education
  • Provider education
  • Policy and advocacy
  • Support for local coalitions
  • Special events

"Got Shots" is an annual event that takes place during mid-July to mid-August, where providers open their doors to vaccinate any child who needs vaccines at no cost, regardless of their ability to pay, or if they are an established patient.  To learn more, go to our Got Shots page.

Each year, NMIC awards providers who are doing an excelent job at immunizing their patients.  In addition, NMIC recognizes individuals or groups who have gone above and beyond to help improve immunization rates.  For a listing of past champions, Go to our IZ Champion page.

NMIC publishes a quarterly newsletter to keep our membership informed of key events and vaccine developments.
