New Mexicans who have received their first dose of the coronavirus vaccine are now able to schedule their own booster shot, state health officials announced Thursday.
To make a booster appointment, log in to vaccineNM.org, choose a location and then select a time from the list of available options.
Any resident who has gotten their first shot — through the vaccineNM.org system or elsewhere — is able to schedule a booster shot.
“Our goal has always been to make registration and vaccination as easy as possible," Dr. Tracie Collins, the state's health secretary, said in a statement. "Given an increase in vaccine supply, we are now able to offer New Mexicans the ability to self-schedule their booster appointments.”
Beginning Monday, New Mexico will expand vaccine eligibility to all residents older than 16. The state has given out more than 1.2 million shots since it began inoculating residents in December.
The New Mexico Department of Health also announced it has launched a website, vaccineNM.org/facts, that answers frequently asked questions about the vaccine.
