After using his position so that two members of his family were vaccinated against covid-19, José Rogel Romero, director of the “Lic. Adolfo López Mateos ”, located in Toluca, will be temporarily separated from his position.
It should be noted that the events were allegedly recorded on December 24 when the vaccination was carried out in the facilities of the 22 Military zone located in the municipality of Santa María Rayón, where the director of the hospital went, since it was contemplated to vaccination.
In an information card, the Secretariat of Health of the State of Mexico indicated that in the place the Secretariat of National Defense established a control in each of the 10 vaccination posts, prior to sending a form to the 10 most decisive hospitals in covid, where each director was entrusted to designate the staff of their medical unit who would receive the biological, who would later be sent a QR code to confirm their registration.
The Ministry of Health of the State of Mexico explained that an error was presented by the company hired for it, which designed the communication system, which would allow to confirm the assistance of the beneficiaries, which it assured caused lack of control and that the health personnel did not attend in full at the assigned time.
Faced with the failure of the system, the registration of vaccinated people was done manually and to effectively use the biological that has six hours for its application, after 14 hours, it was decided jointly to immunize the emergent personnel who were present and belonged to all health institutions.
However, it later emerged that Rogel Romero had taken his family to be vaccinated, which was made known during the press conference of the president of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador.
Given this, the Secretariat of Health of the State of Mexico reported that this conduct will be sanctioned, first by the internal control body of the Secretariat of Health, and the Comptroller General of the State of Mexico will be heard, to which it was reported who will be temporarily separated from his position to make himself available to the investigations of the Internal Control and Comptroller Body

He warned that all irregular conduct by the medical and administrative sector, regardless of rank, will be sanctioned in case of violating the protocols and applying vaccines to people who do not yet correspond to them.
“It is necessary to highlight that the vaccine in this first stage of its application will only be provided to medical personnel from the State of Mexico, which is in the first line of care for patients affected by covid-19,” he said.
As part of the security filter that the State Health Secretariat will apply, the precise identification of each of the doctors and their place of assignment stands out.
