General Vaccine Information
The New Mexico Department of Health (NMDOH) is leading the State of New Mexico’s COVID-19 Vaccination Preparedness Planning in close collaboration with other state agencies, as well as public, private and tribal partners throughout the state. A draft of the plan submitted to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is available here: https://cv.nmhealth.org/draft-vaccine-plan/
Vaccine will be prioritized for frontline health care workers in hospital settings. The state will then provide vaccine to other frontline healthcare workers and first responders, as well as staff and residents of nursing homes and other long-term care facilities. This is in line with federal recommendations.
This means that not everyone will be able to be vaccinated right away, and vaccine may not be available to the general public until mid-2021.
