As members of a society founded on the proposition that all people are created equal, we have a responsibility to make sure that COVID vaccination is available to all residents of New Mexico.

This includes all racial groups and residents of all communities, no matter how small. If we have to send vans with Johnson & Johnson vaccine rolling around the rural areas and cities of New Mexico, so be it.

However, once this is done, society’s duty is complete. The rest is up to the individual.

Whether you are a Thumper, a Trumper or a POC, if you choose hesitation over vaccination, you have a date with Darwin!
