The New Mexico Department of Health has announced that, beginning April 5, all New Mexicans ages 16 and older are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Additionally, states can expect a large increase in vaccine supply over the coming weeks, including significant increases in the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Southwest Pharmacy is currently providing Johnson & Johnson vaccines in Carlsbad – You can register at Advanced Medication Management Systems (575) 885-2979. Those interested in any vaccine should still also follow the process of registering at vaccinenm.org. If you have any vaccine questions, please visit vaccineNM.org/facts.
According to the New Mexico vaccine dashboard, 28.3% of Eddy County residents have received at least one vaccine so far. We hope to see that number continue to increase over the next few weeks, as doses remain available.
