ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — State health officials announced Thursday morning that all registrants 60 and older can now self-schedule their own vaccine appointments.

“We are pleased to offer increased scheduling flexibility for our seniors,” said DOH Cabinet Secretary Dr. Tracie Collins said in a news release. “And in the coming weeks, we intend to offer self-scheduling for all New Mexicans 16 years and older.”

Residents should simply log into, use their confirmation code and date of birth, pick a location and select from available appointments, DOH said in the release.

If no appointments are immediately available, check back regularly because providers continually update schedules.

Seniors and those with disabilities can also call 1-800-432-2080 for support.
