Immunize El Paso, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, is a healthcare resource for immunizations serving those who do not have a traditional medical home or are otherwise unable to obtain timely immunization. We operate two brick-&-mortar clinics housing half a dozen immunization outreach teams that canvass West Texas and Southern New Mexico.
For over 20 years, Immunize El Paso has worked in partnership with the El Paso Department of Public Health, the Texas Department of State Health Services, various health advocacy groups & area school districts by coordinating immunization projects throughout the borderland.
Founded in 1995 by Jill Field, RN, Immunize El Paso was created to function as a clinic without walls – taking desperately needed immunization services into the community. Since our inception, the Immunize El Paso project has provided over 500,000 immunizations to borderland residents. Our successes as immunization champions have been notated and praised on local, state and national levels. As a founding member of the El Paso Immunization Coalition (EPIC), we have promoted many vaccination initiatives to education the public and healthcare providers of the value of timely immunization and routine pediatric care.
We have maintained the mission with no diminution in activity. We have added training in CPR, First Aid, First Responder as well as EMT skills to our offerings (www.pro-action.org).
Services can only increase as we partner with other agencies of like mind.
