Today the San Juan County Office of Emergency Management was involved in what was described as the largest drive-through COVID-19 shot clinic in the county and state (so far) at McGee Park!

The clinic was put on by Presbyterian Medical Services . The PMS staff administered the vaccines, with some other volunteer help, including folks from the New Mexico National Guard. There were numerous other volunteers who made the clinic happen, including San Juan County EMCOMM, New Mexico State Police, American Red CrossSan Juan County NM, staff, and members of the San Juan County Fire Department.

.We want to say thank you to all the folks who made it happen and thank you to all the 700 people who came (with plenty of patience) to get a shot.

There will be further clinics in the future, but the only way to get a shot is to sign up at vaccinenm.org

    The framework includes a new least restrictive level where all categories of business can operate indoors with minimal occupancy limitations, depending on the risk level of the activity. A county will reach this least restrictive level, the Turquoise Level, by meeting key health criteria for two consecutive two-week periods and effectively graduating out of the Red-Yellow-Green framework, provided the virus remains suppressed.
