Albuquerque Isotopes fans can get a COVID-19 vaccination while they attend any of six home games through Tuesday, state health officials announced Thursday.

The vaccination clinic will be held on the concourse at Rio Grande Credit Union Field at Isotopes Park under a partnership between the Isotopes and the New Mexico Department of Health.

Isotopes fans can get the Pfizer vaccine from the time gates open until about the fifth inning of each game.

As of Thursday, 56.1% of New Mexicans were fully vaccinated and 65.8% had received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.

New Mexico recorded 126 new cases of COVID-19 on Thursday, and five new deaths, bringing the number of New Mexico deaths to 4,273, health officials said.

Counties with the largest number of new cases were Bernalillo County, 39; San Juan County, 14; and Doña Ana County, 10.

The five people whose deaths were reported Thursday are a Bernalillo County woman in her 80s, a Doña Ana County man in his 50s, and three San Juan County residents: a woman in her 60s, a man in his 70s, and a man in his 80s.
