CLOVIS, N.M. (KRQE) – New rules have prompted Clovis schools to stop giving vaccines to students.

The Director of Health Services with the schools says the increasing mandates on storage handling and transportation have made things difficult.

They have now decided to end the vaccine program.

Students can still get the vaccines at the Clovis Public Health Office.

The schools also say they have partnered with other local healthcare providers and pharmacies to help keep up with demand in the community.
