UNM just recently announced a vaccination mandate for anyone on campus. A man who was getting his first shot is encouraging other people to do the same. “Get your vaccine, help out the community, let’s do it all, let’s go protect the community and let’s just get out of this mess and get back to normal and that’s it,” said Benny Belone.
The clinics are free. You can walk in but the school says if you make an appointment, you’ll get faster service. For more information, visit bringbackthepack.unm.edu/vaccine.
