Allied Health Immunizations

In order to be in compliance with both New Mexico law and clinical facility requirements, students in CCC's Allied Health programs are required to provide proof of current immunization records. Students should not delay completing their immunizations, as some may take up to 4-6 months to complete.

Once students have applied to their prospective program and been accepted, immunization requirements must be submitted with documentation from a physician and given to the Allied Health Clinical Coordinator upon request. NOTE: Do not turn in proof of immunizations to the CCC Admissions and Records department.
