Categories: Students   Faculty   Staff   Community  


March 2, 2021 - The IHS Gallup Service Unit will conduct a vaccination event to provide the first dose of COVID-19 vaccination for qualifying individuals (see below) at UNM-Gallup on Tuesday, March 2, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. for individuals 16 years or older.

This event is for IHS beneficiaries. Individuals must live in the Gallup Service Unit or receive the majority of their healthcare through GSU. For all vaccinations events, vaccine will be available during the designated hours while supplies last.

Expect long wait times. Be prepared by bringing food, water, and any other necessities while you wait.

Please have your medical record number readily available in order to verify your information.

All COVID-19 vaccinations are voluntary. To review frequently asked questions about the COVID-19 vaccination, visit: www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/faq.html

The CDC recommends to not receive the COVID-19 vaccine within two weeks of receiving other vaccines. Due to the severe health risks associated with COVID-19 and the fact that reinfection with COVID-19 is possible, individuals who have previously tested positive for COVID-19 may be vaccinated after they have recovered and their isolation period is complete. Individuals on isolation or quarantine must stay home. Current evidence suggests that reinfection with the virus that causes COVID-19 is uncommon in the 90 days after initial infection, so you may wait 90 days if desired. If you were treated for COVID-19 symptoms with monoclonal antibodies or convalescent plasma, you must wait 90 days before getting a COVID-19 vaccine. Talk to your doctor if you are unsure what treatments you received or if you have more questions about getting a COVID-19 vaccine.

For any questions, please contact the GIMC COVID-19 Vaccine Information Line at (505)722-1753.
