School Kids Influenza Immunization Project (SKIIP)


School Kids Influenza Immunization Project 2018-2019

UNM HSC, NM Dept. of Health and public schools around New Mexico are partnering to provide influenza vaccine to school children at schools. Health Sciences students are encouraged to take advantage of this important public health opportunity to volunteer at these school clinics. By setting up processes to quickly immunize against influenza, we’ll protect our children and communities and be prepared to mobilize when pandemics strike.
