[ARCHIVED] State Announces Date for Phase 2 COVID-19 Vaccine Eligibility

The New Mexico Department of Health (NMDOH) on Wednesday, March 30  announced that beginning Monday, April 5, 2021 all New Mexicans 16-years old and older will be eligible to receive COVID-19 vaccine.

Currently, Phases 1A, 1B, and 1C are eligible. Beginning Monday, Phase 2 will be eligible as well.

“President Biden directed states to make all adults eligible for vaccine by May 1. New Mexico will meet that mark nearly a month early,” said  state Health Cabinet Secretary Dr. Tracie Collins.

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

In addition, the Centers for Disease Control has indicated states should expect meaningful increases in vaccine supply in the coming weeks - including significant increases in the one-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

New Mexico continues to lead the U.S. in vaccine distribution, and NMDOH encourages all New Mexicans to register at vaccineNM.org. New Mexicans who have vaccine questions can go online to vaccineNM.org/facts.
