SANTA FE – A vaccine against the coronavirus is not publicly available yet.
But with pharmaceutical companies racing to have a vaccine ready by early next year, top New Mexico health officials are already making plans about which state residents could get it first.
A spokeswoman for Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham said Monday that it’s too early to say whether the vaccine will be mandatory for any certain occupations or groups of people in New Mexico but that it will be strongly recommended for residents deemed to be at high risk.
