The Mexican health authorities gave the green light to the AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine, reported the undersecretary of health Hugo López-Gatell on his Twitter account.
It is worth mentioning that in a first message, the undersecretary reported the authorization of Cansino’s anticovid vaccine, but later he deleted the message and corrected it.
Later, López-Gatell referred to what he said was “a typographical error” in the conference of the daily report of the coronavirus pandemic in Mexico.
“So far, the CanSino vaccine has not been granted authorization for use in Mexico (…) Some elements are missing, mainly it has not submitted the complete file to request this condition,” the health official explained.
This Monday, the United Kingdom became the first country to use the British team AstraZeneca / Oxford’s vaccine against COVID-19.
On December 11, Mexico authorized the coronavirus vaccine developed by Pfizer, being the fourth country to give the green light to this development.
At the last cut, Mexico has received 53,625 doses of the vaccine from Pfizer and BioNTech, of which it has already applied about 70% to health personnel.
