The announcement comes after Thursday’s White House press conference where President Biden highlighted the state’s $100 vaccine incentive in June. According to NMDOH, that program led to a 26% overall boost in completed vaccinations.
To be eligible for the incentive, people will have to register online at vaccineNM.org. Once the vaccine is received, the providers have to submit that information to the state system. Once the state received that information, payments will be distributed through email or text message.
