New Mexicans must register by 5 pm on Friday, September 10th

SANTA FE – Between August 2 and August 31, 2021, the New Mexico Department of Health conducted a second round of the $100 COVID-19 vaccine incentive program, Stay Ahead New Mexico.

New Mexicans who received a first or second dose of Pfizer or Moderna – or a first-and-only dose of J&J – between August 2 and 31 are eligible. To receive the incentive, New Mexicans must register at by 5 pm on Friday, September 10.


·     Only one $100 incentive will be distributed per person.

·     New Mexicans can also call 1-855-600-3453 for assistance with registering for the incentive.

Vaccine providers are required to submit information about vaccinations to the New Mexico State Immunization Information System. When the state receives this information, it will process the incentive payments. Payments will be distributed most quickly through email and text message; users who provide only home addresses will receive their incentives less quickly.

The funds for this incentive come from the federal American Rescue Plan.

New Mexicans under the age of 18 will not receive the incentive directly. Instead, their parents/guardians will be required to provide permission, and the incentive will be disbursed to the parent/guardian.
