Of those in Chaves County who registered for a COVID-19 vaccine through the state’s online portal, about 37% are fully vaccinated, according to new data sets posted on the state’s online vaccine dashboard.

The New Mexico Department of Health’s vaccine dashboard now also includes data breaking down registrations and vaccinations by the different phases in the state’s vaccination plan. The data can be shown for the entire state or by a chosen county and is updated twice an hour.

The vaccine phase dashboard can be found through a link on the left column of the main vaccine dashboard page, cvvaccine.nmhealth.org/public-dashboard.html.

The numbers do differ from the main vaccination dashboard page because the phase dashboard data is collected directly from the state’s vaccine registration website, according to a note on the page. The main vaccine dashboard includes overall data from the state as well as from the federal government.

As of noon on Thursday, the phase dashboard showed 14,001 people in all phases registered in Chaves County with 5,209, or 37%, fully vaccinated.

Phase 1b had the largest number of people registered in Chaves County — 10,241. Three subgroups in that phase are currently eligible for vaccines under the state plan — those 75 and older, educators and those age 16 and older with chronic health conditions.

Of those subgroups, nearly 6,000 people with chronic conditions were registered in Chaves County, with 40% of them fully vaccinated. Forty-eight percent of the registered 1,113 educators were fully vaccinated and 53% of the registered 2,546 people 75 and older were fully vaccinated.

Group 1a — consisting mostly of healthcare workers — is also eligible for the vaccine. As of the data posted at noon Thursday, 56% of the registered 1,084 healthcare workers in Chaves County were fully vaccinated.

Any New Mexican over the age of 16 can register for the vaccine even if they are in a group not yet eligible. But the data shows even some of those in non-eligible groups are getting vaccine. That can happen when doses are nearing expiration and need to be used, according to the dashboard.

About 245 frontline essential workers in Chaves County have received at least one dose of vaccine and 105 are fully vaccinated. That group includes those who cannot work remotely such employees in grocery stores, agriculture, public transit, manufacturing, law enforcement, firefighting and mortuaries.

Phase 1c consists of people 60 years and older and other essential workers. In Chaves County, 456 people in that group had received at least one dose and 123 were fully vaccinated.

Phase 2 of the state’s vaccination plan includes all New Mexicans age 16 or older. In Chaves County, 212 people in that category had received at least one dose with 57 fully vaccinated.

The total number of deaths in Chaves County is now 162. Statewide, 3,877 people have died.
