New Mexico has given out nearly 2 million doses of coronavirus vaccine since it began inoculating residents in December, according to the state's vaccine dashboard.

In all, 65.2 percent of eligible New Mexicans have been partially vaccinated and 55.3 percent have been fully vaccinated. In Santa Fe County, 62.5 percent of eligible residents have been fully vaccinated.

The state Department of Health on Friday reported 124 new coronavirus cases, including four in Santa Fe County, 31 in Bernalillo County and 22 in San Juan County. 

The state also reported six additional deaths — two in Doña Ana County and one each in Bernalillo, Grant, McKinley and Mora counties.

The virus has infected 202,821 New Mexicans, resulting in 4,263 deaths.

I thought New Mexico had a population of about 2 million... is it much higher? If 2 million vaccinations have been injected I'd think the ratio of those vaxxed would be close to 100%. Kari Mullis died in August 2019 and was the Nobel Prize winning physicist who created the PCR test. He was adamant that the test does not provide an accurate discovery of what ails you because the cycles of amplification can be dialed up to such a degree that you can find anything you want to. He said after the x-25 mark the PCR is entirely ficticious. These tests are regularly amplified to 35 times and higher. Finding bubonic plague? Sure, why not? I doubt seriously that the number of "cases" presented in this article are accurate. This is an article providing 18 reasons not to be vaxxed. Every reason stands alone and should be a warning, but read all 18 and ask yourself why you are getting vaxxed regardless. https://tinyurl.com/bnxvh44x

A French doctor/scientist named Luc Montagnier was awarded the Nobel Prize for medicine for discovering HIV. Recently he announced that these many rushed-to-market vaccines are going to cause irreparable damage to the population. https://tinyurl.com/esrf6kds

Such a nice illustration of the quality of thinking among the anti-vaxers. We have used mostly a 2 dose vaccine and poor Tom can't understand why 2 million doses doesn't equal 100% vaccination of the population. The rest of his post is of equal quality.

Tom Hyland

You're correct, John. If this article pertains only to those who were jabbed twice, then 2 million doses would be about half the population of New Mexico. I checked the current population numbers and we are just under 2.1 million in this state. Please understand, I am not anti-vaxx. I am anti EXPERIMENTAL UNTESTED vaxx. I received the polio and small pox vaccines as a kid and those vaccines were time tested and mostly safe. The mulititude of covid speedy vaxxes that have been pushed at us are not time tested. It takes a minimum of 12 years to create a vaccine regarded as safe and only a few months doesn't cut it. The FDA has not approved a single one of these emergency vaccines. In 1976 the swine flu vaxx was abruptly stopped when close to 50 people died immediately after being vaccinated. We are approaching 5,000 deaths here in the US immediately following the covid vaxx so there is valid concern why this fiasco isn't being closely monitored. The rest of my post is valuable to those who want to explore reason and logic regarding this before unheard of dilemma we are facing. Obviously you didn't click a link because if you did you would have learned something.

Your link is to a fully discredited ant-vax site. The CDC says there are no cases with an established death as a result of the vaccine. It's easy to google this question. It is simply silly to say this in an experimental untested vaccine. It has been human tested on more than 180 million Americans under the most intensely supervised conditions in history. There has never been a more 'tested' vaccine and it is safe. If you aren't 'anti-vax' as you say then you must be a Republican.

Reason and logic? You are kidding right Tom? FEAR! and PANIC! is the message, always. Oh....and STATE control will save you if you obey.

I wrote a reply to you, congratulating you for being correct regarding two shots for every one participant, but the Santa Fe New Mexican is not posting my reply. I posted that reply about 8:30 am but still it hasn't appeared under this article. The population of New Mexico is just under 2.1 million so maybe half the people have been vaxxed. Please take note that I am not anti-vaxx. I am anti-experimental-emergency vaxx and especially those dozen or so varieties lately that have not been safety approved by the FDA. None have been FDA approved.

Yes, PCR tests are manipulated to....whatever they want results to be. Died with covid or from covid? Long term testing of experimental shot is ongoing, we will see what results are in a few years. Meanwhile I won't take shot because, well, I understand the math and odds. I'm not obese, nor drug addicted so my chances of survival are more than excellent. AND, no, I don't care about the grandmothers out there, they can stay home if they are living in fear and panic. Folks will object Tom, but won't know why.

Hi Mark. I am only offered the "report" button under Mr. Cook's scolding remark to me, so I'll just say these experimental vaccines might just erase Democrats and Republicans all together. Having voted only for Jimmy Carter back in 1976, and I never voted again, there's no way I'm a Republican. I guess I am a breather... not a believer. George Carlin asked, "Why do you care so much about politicians? They don't care about you." Alas....
