New Mexico is inching closer to its goal of having 60% of New Mexicans fully vaccinated. As of Wednesday, 58.7% of New Mexicans were fully vaccinated.
Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham said the state will fully reopen after reaching the 60% milestone.
In an effort to reach the goal by July, the state is offering numerous incentives to get people vaccinated.
The state is handing out $100 to people who are getting vaccinated this week.There will also be sweepstakesfor New Mexicans who have been vaccinated.
According to the state's Human Services Department, the incentives are leading to a surge in vaccinations. More than five times as many people have gotten their Johnson and Johnson single-dose vaccines than before those incentives took effect.
