Services previously provided in west Las Cruces move to city’s east mesa
(Las Cruces) – The New Mexico Department of Health announced today it is closing its West Las Cruces Immunization Center, 1850 Cooper Loop, Building A, and relocating its immunization services to the East Mesa Public Health Office at 5220 Holman Road.
“We made the decision to move immunization services to the east side of the city to better serve our local residents,” said New Mexico Department of Health Southwest Region Director Ray Stewart. “Our west Las Cruces office was located in a primarily industrial part of town. Moving our immunization center to the East Mesa will provide additional services to one of the most rapidly growing residential areas in Las Cruces.”
Tuesday, December 16th will be the last day for services at the west Las Cruces location.
Immunization services will be provided on a full time basis at the East Mesa Public Health Office beginning on Monday, January 5th.
