The state is 1.5 percentage points from reaching its goal of 60% of the population being fully vaccinated by the end of June, according to data on the New Mexico Department of Health’s vaccine dashboard Tuesday afternoon.

To reach the goal, 60% of those age 16 or older will have to have completed a series of vaccine shots by Thursday, the state reported. Full vaccination is reached two weeks after an individual has a second dose of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccines or one dose of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine.

Tuesday afternoon, the vaccine dashboard showed 58.5% of New Mexicans have completed a vaccination series. More than 67% have received at least one dose.

In its daily case update Tuesday, NMDOH reported 122 new cases of COVID-19. Chaves County reported only one new case, while Bernalillo County reported 25 and San Juan County reported 10. Eighteen counties reported fewer than 10 cases each. The Torrance County Detention Facility reported 26 new cases.

There have been 204,392 total cases of COVID-19 in the state, including 9,057 in Chaves County.
