New data offers a glimpse into how far along New Mexico is in each phase of its plan to get people vaccinated against COVID-19 and how long before even more people could become eligible. Of those registered on the state’s vaccine website who fall into the first few eligible groups, about half have gotten at least one shot.
The first phase included healthcare workers and long-term care facilities, and numbers from the state’s registration system show nearly 77% of people in that category who registered have had at least one shot. It is nearly 67% in the next phase for people 75 and older and nearly 37% for people with medical conditions that put them at-risk of COVID complications.
