The New Mexico Department of Health on Thursday, April 8 announced that registrants who are 60 years and older can now schedule their own COVID-19 vaccine appointments.

To do so, users simply log in to using their confirmation code and date of birth, choose their location, and then select from available appointments in their area. Event codes for New Mexicans 60 and older are no longer required, though they are required for younger populations.

“We are pleased to offer increased scheduling flexibility for our seniors,” said state Health Cabinet Secretary Dr. Tracie Collins. “And in the coming weeks, we intend to offer self-scheduling for all New Mexicans 16 years and older.” 

In the event that a user does not immediately find an available appointment, NMDOH encourages them to check back again. Providers are continually updating their appointment schedules.

Seniors and those with disabilities can also call  toll-free 800/432-2080 for support with registration and scheduling.

The announcement comes alongside an important milestone: more than half of New Mexicans 16 years and older have now received at least a first shot, and nearly a third are now fully vaccinated. New Mexico continues to lead the nation in COVID-19 vaccine distribution.
