FNMD Headers CovidUpdate

COVID-19 vaccinations were still offered at the Walter Gerrells Civic Center on Jan. 10 from 9 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. The civic center clinic will not be held on Jan. 17 due to the holiday, but the clinic will re-open the following week.  New Mexicans can sign up for vaccine appointments at vaccineNM.orgvaccineNM.org/kids, or vaccine.gov, or through their personal  medical provider or at some pharmacies. Vaccinations are offered for ages 5 and up, and booster shots are offered for those ages 12 and up.

According to the state, 55.3% of Eddy County residents 18 and over have now completed their vaccine series. We are tied with De Baca County and are slightly ahead of Lea and Chaves counties. A COVID-19 vaccine offers significant protection against the worst symptoms of COVID-19 – hospital officials say about 95% of their COVID-19 ICU patients have been unvaccinated. 

COVID-19 testing issues have persisted. On Monday, Carlsbad Municipal Schools sent a notice Monday saying that its COVID-19 testing site is currently closed due to a shortage of test supplies. The school will issue a notice when this issue has been resolved. Testing was available Monday morning at the civic center.
