The New Mexico Department of Health announced Monday that residents who are 40 years and older may now schedule an appointment to receive a COVID-19 vaccine without an event code.
To schedule an appointment, New Mexicans can log in to thestate's vaccine portaland select a nearby vaccination site.
"This has always been the goal - to provide New Mexicans as much flexibility as possible in scheduling their vaccine appointments," NMDOH Cabinet Secretary Dr. Tracie Collins said. "And in the coming weeks, we intend to offer self-scheduling for all New Mexicans 16 years and older."
If an appointment is not available, state officials say to check back again periodically. Providers are continually updating appointment schedules.
