EL PASO, Texas -- An El Pasoan who was fully vaccinated has died of a Covid-19 infection, the first such incident in the Sun City, officials confirmed Thursday.

A spokeswoman for the El Paso health department identified the victim as a woman in her 60s with underling health issues. Out of 2,658 El Paso County deaths reported to date due to Covid, this was the only fatality involving a vaccinated person.

Despite the death, the spokeswoman emphasized the importance of vaccinations - which overall have proven very effective - even though they are not 100% guaranteed.

To date, nearly 66% of all El Pasoans over the age of 12 have been fully vaccinated.

  1. Out of 2,658 El Paso County deaths reported to date due to Covid, this was the only fatality involving a vaccinated person. That equals to .0003 of the total deaths. So out of 136,000 infected people only 2657 resulted in death. So that is only .02 of the infected resulted in death.
    So ask yourself? Was the shut down and losses on the economy worth it? The loss of jobs? The torment of being cooped up inside your home? The fear mongering of the left? Vote the demoKKKrats out. They are worthless fools.

    1. Add having to wear ridiculous face masks for 15 months that really don’t prevent you from spreading or catching the virus.

  2. There’s that underlying health conditions statement. 75% of the 2658 deaths had underlying conditions aka comorbidity meaning that they most likely did not die solely from the virus.

  3. The CDC VAERS site reporting thousands are getting bad side effects beyond mild symptoms after getting the vaccine. More deaths nationwide.
