First Lady Jill Biden visits New Mexico amid vaccine push

ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico — First lady Jill Biden kicked off a three-day, two-state visit to the U.S. Southwest with a tour of a vaccination clinic in New Mexico, where early efforts to get people registered for shots helped to propel the state's standing as a national leader in vaccine distribution.

Wednesday’s tour came as the nation is set to meet President Joe Biden’s goal of administering 200 million coronavirus doses in his first 100 days in office. Earlier in the day, the president outlined his administration’s latest plans to motivate more Americans to get shots as demand diminishes.

In New Mexico, nearly 39% of residents 16 and older have been fully vaccinated. While eligibility was expanded earlier this month as part of the Biden administration's push, the focus is now shifting to younger people ahead of the summer break.

Jill Biden on Wednesday afternoon visited a health care clinic in Albuquerque where vaccines are being administered. She was accompanied by New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, whose administration has been working to ensure that shots are being distributed to rural and under-served areas through mobile clinics and partnerships with community health organizations.

As part of her swing through the Southwest, the first lady also will travel to the Navajo Nation, where she will meet Thursday with Navajo President Jonathan Nez and first lady Phefelia Nez in Window Rock, Arizona, before delivering a radio address. She is scheduled to attend a listening session Friday with Navajo students before taking a tour of a vaccination site.

    Total reprobate, illegitimate Bidumb Regime is illegitimate. Ignore them, wholesale.

    1. Persons who have been awarded a doctorate degree and have ‘Phd’ after their names are referred to as “doctor”. Of course we don’t expect uneducated white trash to know that.

    2. Trump lost. He was a criminal, a traitor, a draft dodger, a failed businessman, a rapist, a delusional psychopathic liar, a white supremacist, and a threat to our national security.

      1. Leftists: blah blah blah propaganda propaganda propaganda blah blah blah. Don’t use my own brain. Only repeat what I am told to say blah blah blah

  2. Again we have a demonstration of the character of the local hillbillies and trump supporters. Trump lost. He was a traitor, a criminal, a rapist, and a white supremacist.

    1. We aren’t going away. We will continue to fight against the leftist propoganda and the constant lies of the media and the low information morons ilke you spewing that propoganda as instructed by your handlers in the media. The next generations WILL know that Trump was the greatest President in American history. Your lies and disinformation won’t change that.

  3. Trump lost. He was a traitor, a criminal, a coward, a rapist, a white supremacist, a delusional liar, a failed businessman, a draft dodger, a russian operative, and was completely unfit for office. He was also a threat to the national security which is why the scumbag doesn’t receive security briefings as all presidents in the past did.

    1. Noone’s coming for anyone. The traitors are the morons like you who voted for an America last President and are supporting the terrorist Obama as the “Shadow Government” President. America will not exist in 4 years and you are in full support of that. You Mark Turner are the true traitor.

    2. The REAL partriots are heavily armwd and will wipe out the GUTLESS leftist once AGAIN when the next civil war that Biden is in the process of creatung begins.
