All New Mexicans age 16 and older are eligible for COVID-19 vaccine

New Mexico Department of Health (NMDOH) has announced that, as of Monday, April 5, 2021, all New Mexicans age 16 and older are now eligible for COVID-19 vaccine.

NMDOH will continue to prioritize vaccine invitations for Phase 1A, New Mexicans 75 years and older, and New Mexicans 60 years and older with a chronic condition. The Department has chosen to open Phase 2 – the final distribution phase – because providers in some parts of the state are no longer able to fill appointments within Phases 1A, 1B, and 1C.

In addition, the CDC has indicated that states should expect meaningful increases in vaccine supply over the coming weeks.

Users who have questions or would like support with the registration process – including New Mexicans who do not have internet access – can dial 1-855-600-3453, press option 0 for vaccine questions, and then option 4 for tech support.
