Health authorities in New Mexico send a text about the fourth COVID-19 shot

If you are immunocompromised, the New Mexico Department of Health recommends that you get another COVID-19 booster. Individuals whose vaccine data show that they are immunocompromised may have received a text message from the State Department of Health receiving their fourth shot or other booster. This happens as federal agencies monitor the possibility of recommending a fourth shot. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration “is actually constantly looking at the new data on the pandemic and variants in the United States and abroad to evaluate the potential benefit and composition of booster doses,” FDA spokeswoman Alison Hunt wrote in an email to CNN on Friday. An FDA director told CNN that the fourth dose may be recommended in the fall, which coincides with the administration of flu shots, which could be practical for humans and make scientific sense because respiratory viruses – like coronavirus and flu – tend to to peak in the winter months that follow. Nationwide, COVID-19 cases and hospital admissions are declining drastically as the threatening rise from the omicron variant continues to decline. In New Mexico, the seven-day average for cases is 482 per. February 18 compared to Jan. 18-day seven-day average of 5,280 cases according to the state’s COVID-19 dashboard. State data also shows that hospitalizations are currently at 322. Immunocompromised individuals in New Mexico seeking their fourth COVID-19 shot can do so here, or call 1- 855-600-3453.
