Our vaccine mission at the NMDOH is to vaccinate New Mexicans swiftly, efficiently, and equitably to save lives and stop the spread of the virus. We hope this resource page can be one of the tools to help make it easier for communities to join us in the effort to vaccinate our most vulnerable populations.
This website was developed with the input of our community partners. We hope this will be a helpful one-stop resource for our community partners, Community Health Workers (CHWs) and Community Health Representative (CHRs) to quickly link to registration, flyers, training materials, data, and trusted resources.
There are three easy ways to get the vaccine in New Mexico.
- Online Registration at vaccinenm.org
- Phone Registration by calling the hotline at 1-855-600-3453
- Walk-In at available sites.
Minors need written consent from a parent or guardian to recieve a COVID-19 vaccine. You can find the parental consent form by clicking here.
AASTEC has created a Native American COVID-19 Vaccine Hotline!
This hotline serves the Tribes, Pueblos, Bands, Nations, and urban Indian communities in the Albuquerque IHS Area.
The hotline can help people get up-to-date information about COVID-19 vaccines.
Anyone who has any suspicion they may have COVID-19 symptoms or who has a known exposure to COVID-19 should get tested. Knowing whether you are infected with coronavirus can help protect yourself and your community.
Find a testing location near you
The CDC maintains a testing site locator that can aid you in finding a COVID-19 testing location.
Call the COVID-19 Hotline
NMDOH maintains a call center that can help you access COVID-19 testing.
People who test positive for COVID and who are at risk for getting very sick should get treatment right away. This includes people with these conditions:
- Chronic Kidney Disease
- Chronic Liver Diseases
- Chronic Lung Diseases

- Dementia or other neurological conditions
- Heart Conditions
- HIV Infection
- Mental Health Disorders
- Organ or Stem Cell Transplant

Who can get it: People ages 12 or older, who are COVID positive, who are not hospitalized, and who are at high risk for getting very sick.
How to use it: People using oral COVID treatments will need to take 3-4 pills, twice a day, for 5 days. Oral treatments need to be taken within 5 days of starting symptoms.
A referral from a medical provider is needed to receive treatment. If you do not have a provider, please call the hotline at:

A flipchart is an education tool used by CHWs throughout the world. This flipchart was created to help CHWs and other community partners to share vaccine facts, address vaccine concerns and myths, educate about the COVID variants, and combat misinformation. One of the biggest threats to ending the COVID pandemic is information that is false, inaccurate or misleading. This flipchart was a co-creation by the NMDOH, partners at UNM’s Community Health Workers Initiatives, CHWs throughout the state, and our summer intern team.
Download the Flipchart Below:
How To Use the Flipchart
The flipchart is designed for use by CHWs and other community partners to share information with community members.
The flipchart is organized into four parts:
- Vaccine Facts
- Vaccine Concerns
- Vaccine Myths
- COVID-19 Variants
These sections were designed to make sharing information more navigable.
NMDOH and CHWI have teamed up to provide bi-weekly CHW training meetings over zoom!
Data is part of NMDOH’s Health Equity Plan. American Indian, Black/ African American, and Hispanic/ Latino populations, and people living in poverty have been hardest hit by COVID-19 in our state as seen in our COVID case reports. While much of our American Indian populations have been vaccinated, our Black/ African American and Hispanic/ Latino populations as well as many of our poorest communities in New Mexico have lower vaccination rates. Being able to track the data on vaccinations by tracking racial/ethnic doses and the Social Vulnerability Index, can help us identify where we need to focus our vaccination efforts to address health equity so we don’t lose any more lives to COVID.
Collectively, we can all work to help prevent COVID illness, hospitalizations and deaths, and we can use data to track our efforts.

Vaccine Equity Risk Map: SVI stands for Social Vulnerability Index. It is a measure that combines categories such as poverty, housing and vehicle access to determine how well a community can respond to and recover from disease outbreaks like COVID or disasters. The higher the SVI, the more vulnerable a community is. On this map red means high social vulnerability and low vaccination rates. We need to focus our efforts in these areas: covid.cdc.gov/covid-data-tracker/#vaccination-equity
COVID Epidemiology Reports: NMDOH is committed to providing New Mexico residents with the most current information regarding COVID-19 in the state. As part of the COVID-19 pandemic response, NMDOH collects and analyzes statewide data for COVID-19 positive cases, hospitalizations, and deaths. These are updated weekly: cv.nmhealth.org/epidemiology-reports/

Frequently Asked Questions
Question: I lost my vaccine card. How can I get another one?
Answer: New Mexicans who misplace their vaccine card can contact the provider that administered their vaccine and ask for a replacement. New Mexicans can also visit www.vaxviewnm.org to obtain their immunization record, which should show that they’ve completed the vaccine series (assuming the provider has correctly reported it to NMSIIS already). If you experience difficulty logging in, please call the NMSIIS Help Desk at 833-882-6454 for assistance.
Question: Does the COVID Vaccine cause infertility?
Answer: No, it does not cause infertility.
Claims that COVID-19 vaccines can cause infertility are circulating on social media and among some concerned individuals. There is zero scientifically based evidence that vaccines affect fertility. And that goes for men as well as women.
Here are is some additional information about COVID-19 vaccines and pregnancy:
- During the COVID-19 vaccine clinical trials, participants were asked to not get pregnant. Despite this request, 23 women became pregnant after receiving the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine as part of the clinical trials.
- No adverse effects were reported by those women.
Question: Is misinformation a threat to beating the COVID19 Pandemic?
Answer: Yes, misinformation is a threat. The surgeon general declared misinformation a public health emergency. Here is the document that outlines what you can do:
