BAY: Hello, I’m Dr. Wei-Ann Bay, an internal medicine physician and chief medical officer at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Mexico. Federal and state health officials are working with the medical community on making sure all eligible persons have easy access to the COVID-19 vaccine. Talk to your health care provider about the vaccine and when you should get it once it is available to you, along with any questions you have. You can register online at cvvaccine.nmhealth.org. Getting the vaccine ensures the widest protection to the greatest number of people. You should also get all recommended immunizations, including your flu shot, and follow recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for using a face covering to help your fellow New Mexicans stay healthy. As always, remember to talk to your health care provider about any health questions or concerns you may have.
