Talking the vaccine should be an individual decision. FGGAM NEWS JUST RECEIVED THIS NEWS RELEASE:
Senator Gregg Schmedes Urges Governor to Reject Federal Vaccine Mandate
SANTA FE – Yesterday, President Joe Biden issued a sweeping federal vaccine mandate for all employers with more than 100 employees. The mandate requires vaccination for all employees or weekly testing requirements for those who remain unvaccinated. In response, several governors have challenged the President’s action and some have signaled their intention to challenge the mandate in court.  
Senator Gregg Schmedes, a licensed physician and the only practicing doctor in the New Mexico Legislature, issued the following statement urging Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham to join the growing opposition to the federal mandate.
“The hypocrisy and failures of the Biden Administration in their handling of this pandemic have sown distrust in the hearts and minds of too many Americans. Now that President Biden has shown he is willing to back down on his promise to not order federal vaccine mandates, we are waiting for Governor Lujan Grisham to stand firm in her convictions. The Governor has previously rejected the notion that anyone—including the Legislature—should have a say regarding her authority to unilaterally issue health mandates. It is now the Governor’s self-proclaimed responsibility to reject this mandate in order to preserve her alleged right to impose health mandates in New Mexico.”
Where is the common sense???? It’s for cows! Not Humans!

Reports of Severe Illness Associated with Use of Products Containing Ivermectin to Prevent or Treat COVID-19
SANTA FE –  The New Mexico Department of Health, (NMDOH) in collaboration with the New Mexico Poison and Drug Information Center, is monitoring cases of ivermectin toxicity among persons attempting to treat COVID-19.
NMDOH is asking all health care providers to report ivermectin toxicity cases effective today. In addition, all deaths related to ivermectin fall under the statutory requirement to report to the Office of the Medical Investigator.
Ivermectin is a U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved prescription medication used to treat certain infections caused by internal and external parasites. Ivermectin is not authorized or approved by the FDA for the prevention or treatment of COVID-19. When used as prescribed for approved indications, it is generally safe and well tolerated.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, ivermectin dispensing by retail pharmacies has increased, as has use of veterinary formulations available over the counter but not intended for human use. The National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) COVID-19 Treatment Guidelines Panel has determined that there is currently insufficient data to recommend ivermectin for treatment of COVID-19.
In 2021, poison control centers across the U.S. received a three-fold increase in the number of calls for human exposures to ivermectin compared to the pre-pandemic baseline. In some cases, people have ingested ivermectin-containing products purchased without a prescription, including topical formulations and veterinary products. Veterinary formulations intended for use in large animals such as horses, sheep, and cattle (e.g., “sheep drench,” injection formulations, and “pour-on” products for cattle) can be highly concentrated and result in overdoses when used by humans. Animal products may also contain inactive ingredients that have not been evaluated for use in humans. People who take inappropriately high doses of ivermectin above FDA-recommended dosing may experience toxic effects.
Clinical effects of ivermectin overdose include gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Overdoses are associated with hypotension and neurologic effects such as decreased consciousness, confusion, hallucinations, seizures, coma, and death. Ivermectin may potentiate the effects of other drugs that cause central nervous system depression such as benzodiazepines and barbiturates.
If you or someone you know is showing signs of an ivermectin overdose, call 911.
All suspected cases should also be reported to the Poison Control Center by calling 1-800-222-1222.
