Since the new common belief is that un-vaccinated people are dying at the rate of 99%, all the vaccinated folks should rest easy. Those not vaccinated will all be dead soon. And, well spoken, Chris.

No, vaccine resistance only put the unvaccinated at risk, and I for one could care less about those kind of people. I refuse to be worried, or change anything about my returned to normal lifestyle because of them, they are not my problem, I am vaccinated. Read what the science says, Dr. Walensky (CDC) recently:“Our data from the C.D.C. today suggests that vaccinated people do not carry the virus, don’t get sick,” she said. “And that it’s not just in the clinical trials, it’s also in real-world data.”. Follow the science people, trust the vaccine fully, if you are vaccinated you are safe, period.

Mike, I think the fear is that the virus will mutate into a more lethal form, and that is a valid fear. Nonetheless, Covid isn't all THAT dangerous, and if it isn't more lethal than the flu, who's to force the vaccine on anyone.

People simply lose perspective. Global warming is a much greater threat than Covid, and it seems we can't act, because its inconvenient to change our lifestyle.

We never have to fear that people will become too rational... And, at worst, we are all going to die at some point, so relax. Most of the Covid terror is political, as it allowed the govt to print a few trillions and throw it around. THAT may be a bigger threat than Covid, but we won't go there....

Good response. As an old Irish ballad proclaims about war - "they're rolling out the guns again." Well, they're rolling out the fears again.

Well I'm glad you have no immunologically compromised people or children in your circle, Mike. But my child can't get vaccinated, thanks for letting us know you don't care about him but your argument misses that important point. Vaccine resistance is still a problem even if you "refuse to be worried."

Mike Johnson

Lupe, if you child is under 12 and can't get vaccinated yet, the risk of serious illness or death is next to zero. And if you are vaccinated, and all your family, you will NOT spread it to child. If you are really that concerned about a minuscule chance, make your child wear a mask and distance constantly, or make them stay home. That is OK with me, it's your problem, not mine.

What about the 206,551 New Mexicans who have already had the virus? Don't they have immunity too?

How dare you ask a rational question? Kidding, of course.
