The New Mexico Department of Health (DOH) on Tuesday announced that businesses, nonprofits, religious congregations, community centers, and other organizations can now request on-site vaccination events through a new DOH webform at getvaxnm.com.
“DOH is committed to making vaccine available to New Mexicans where they live and work,” said Cabinet Secretary Dr. Tracie Collins. “By offering organizations the opportunity to request on-site vaccination events, we’ll make getting a shot even easier.”
Organizations that can bring a minimum of 25 people to a vaccination event – through a combination of employees/members, family, or members of the surrounding community – will qualify, and DOH will work with the organization on scheduling. In some cases, DOH may combine multiple requests and create a single event in a given geographical location. DOH may also redirect requesting organizations to pre-existing events.
New Mexicans can also continue to register and self-schedule their vaccine appointments at vaccineNM.org.
