State health officials are urging New Mexicans who have not yet been vaccinated to do so, in hopes of the state reaching its 60 percent vaccination goal by July 1. If the goal is met, the state will reopen fully, without any limitations, according to a press release from the New Mexico Department of Health.
Health officials are urging all New Mexicans 16 and older to sign up to receive the vaccine, and said that the state is 40,810 vaccinations away from meeting the 60 percent threshold, and that the goal can be reached if enough people to get vaccinated by June 17 in order to reach the July 1 goal.
Residents can go to vaccinenm.org to schedule an appointment. All vaccinated individuals are also eligible to enter the state’s “Vax 2 the Max Sweepstakes,” in which $10 million dollars will be awarded to select winners. The first drawing will take place Friday, June 18, when four winners will receive $250,000 each. To register to enter the sweepstakes, go to vax2themaxnm.org.
