New Mexicans encouraged to sign up for vaccination through June 17
SANTA FE – The New Mexico Department of Health today announced a $100 incentive for New Mexicans who complete their vaccination series or receive a single-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccination through June 17.
New Mexicans with questions can dial 1-855-600-3453.
“New Mexico is so close to hitting our June 17th goal: 60% of New Mexicans 16 and over who have completed their vaccination series. We are excited to offer this additional incentive to get us over the finish line – and to reopen our state by July 1,” said DOH Cabinet Secretary Dr. Tracie Collins.
All New Mexicans who have received at least one shot are also eligible for the Vax 2 the Max sweepstakes, including a total of $10 million in cash prizes and other awards. On June 18, New Mexico will conduct its first drawings – four prizes of $250,000 each. New Mexicans who wish to participate can sign up at vax2themaxNM.org.
